Intellectual Growth

At the beginning of 2017 three new partners were appointed from within the company: Marco Stief’s appointment as equity partner, managing director and head of the legal department in January 2017 marks a significant step in Maiwald’s plans to expand its legal department. Dr-Ing. Sophie Ertl is a valuable addition to our engineering department at partner level. And finally, Dr Eva Dörner will play an active role in developing Maiwald‘s capacity in the areas of chemistry, pharmacy and plant protection.

Our growth trajectory continued in April with the incorporation into our firm of the Munich boutique IP firm of Kotitschke & Heurung.

Our engineering section has been further strengthened by the arrival of patent attorney Dr Ralf Kotitschke as equity partner and managing director. Susanna Heurung also brings valuable expertise to our firm, particularly in the area of trademark law.

We are very pleased to have this opportunity to present our enlarged team and look forward to a continuation of our hitherto excellent working relationship.
