Category Litigation: Patent Attorneys – Germany 2023 (Preeminent law firms in patent prosecution) & Category Litigation Lawyers (Preeminent law firms in patent litigation)
JUVE praises Maiwald’s established mixed approach, being focused “on litigation for clients from the pharma, biotech and medical products sectors. With a large number of nullity and opposition suits for such notable companies as Betapharm, Hexal and CureVac, the renowned team of patent attorneys especially has secured a place among those challenging the market leaders. The small lawyer team is also well positioned for nullity and infringement proceedings in the pharma sector. Maiwald operates on the side of both originators and generics/biologics manufacturers.”
We are very happy about the 4-star ranking in the category “Litigation: Patent Attorneys – Germany 2023”.
JUVE points out Maiwald’s strenghts, which is “Litigation and patent prosecution with technical expertise in biotech, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Licensing contracts. Excellent US contacts” and Maiwalds specialties: “IP activity with a clear focus on patent prosecution. Broad technical spectrum with a large pharmaceuticals and chemicals practice. Opposition and nullity suits. Infringement proceedings with mixed teams. Licensing and R&D contracts.”
