MAIWALD PATENTANWALTS- UND RECHTSANWALTSGESELLSCHAFT MBH ging gestärkt aus 2019 und 2020 hinaus. Mit dem im Februar 2019 von Mitscherlich & Partner hinzugestoßenen und im August zum Partner ernannten doppelt als Patent- und Rechtsanwalt qualifizierten Stefan Bianchin und den Partnerernennungen von drei Patentanwälten standen die Zeichen weiter auf Wachstum. Pharmamandate bilden den Kern der Praxis, aber das Team ist auch gut in den Life Sciences etabliert und gewinnt in diversen anderen Sektoren wie Maschinenbau und Elektronik an Profil, nicht zuletzt wegen der entsprechenden Stärkung der Prosecution-Praxis der gemischten Patent- und Rechtsanwaltskanzlei. Marco Stief leitet die Praxis und ist in nationalen und internationalen Patentverletzungsfällen, Grenzbeschlagnahmeverfahren und Streitigkeiten aus Technologieverträgen erfahren.

Germany > Intellectual property > Patent litigation

In 2019 and 2020, MAIWALD PATENTANWALTS- UND RECHTSANWALTSGESELLSCHAFT MBH emerged strengthened. The arrival of dually qualified patent lawyer and attorney-at-law Stefan Bianchin from Mitscherlich & Partner in February 2019 and his subsequent partner promotion in August along with the partner promotion of three patent lawyers indicated a clear growth trajectory for the practice. Pharmaceutical matters constitute the practice’s core, although the team is also an established advisor in the life sciences sector and is increasingly gaining profile in other industries such as mechanical engineering and electronics, not least due to the strengthening of the mixed patent and attorney-at-law firm’s prosecution practice. Marco Stief heads the practice and has experience in national and international patent infringement matters, border seizure proceedings and disputes related to technology agreements.
