Die Kanzlei mit Standorten in München und Düsseldorf ist weiter eine sichere Wahl für Pharma- und Chemiepatente, der traditionellen Kernexpertise des Teams, wobei über die Jahre der Ausbau der Biotechnologieexpertise gelang, unter anderem zu Impfstoffen und der Stammzelltherapie. Die Expertise zu ergänzenden Schutzzertifikaten ist eine weitere Stärke der Kanzlei. Drei weitere besonders schnell wachsende Praxisbereiche sind die Elektrotechnik, der Maschinenbau und die computerbezogenen Erfindungen; man konnte aber 2020 auch in der Medizintechnik spürbar zulegen. Mandate mit Digitalisierungsbezug und aus dem Bereich künstliche Intelligenz sind ebenfalls zunehmend im Arbeitsaufkommen vertreten. Neben der Prosecution-Praxis, die eine erhebliche EPA-Einspruchspraxis beinhaltet, ist man in der IP-Strategieberatung erfahren und konnte sich dank der hauseigenen Rechtsanwälte auch einen guten Ruf in Verletzungsverfahren erarbeiten. Die Mandantschaft ist sehr international zusammengesetzt, wobei Schwerpunkte auf China, Japan, der Schweiz, den USA und Großbritannien liegen.
