At Squire Patton Boggs the 'very experienced' Christofer Eggers in Frankfurt has been advising the food sector for 30 years, almost exclusively in connection with branded products. He primarily focuses on trade mark, unfair competition and regulatory matters, but recently has also been increasingly active in connection with antitrust proceedings. Clients stem from various segments of the food industry with a particular focus on spirits, breweries and drinks manufacturers, including domestic family companies and start-ups as well as large international corporations. Eggers' niche expertise in indications of geographic origin was most recently successfully put into action in the case of his client BALEMA against Consorzio Tutela Aceto Balsamico di Modena at the German Federal Court of Justice and European Court of Justice for the approval of German balsamico; vinegar products from Germany can now continue to be distributed under the term balsamico.
