Chambers Europe Guide 2017 recommends Maiwald as one of Germany's leading firms of patent attorneys particularly for patent applications, portfolio management and infringement disputes. Maiwald's expertise across a broad spectrum of technology sectors, namely chemistry, biology, biotechnology, physics and engineering receive special mention. Chambers quotes a client as saying: "The team works at the highest level legally, covers the necessary depth in a case but at the same time keeps an eye on the economic relationships and suggests pragmatic, out-of-the-box solutions." The area of patent prosecution also came in for particular praise: "excellent at drafting priority applications on biotech topics." Holger Glas is particularly recommended.
