´Well organised, competent advice, good level of detail.´

´A strong team that covers all areas that are important to us at partner level and is also focused on relevant issues. A resource-saving approach, focused on the solution and not on the problem, together with the combination of IP and patent law makes working together very easy for us. The exchange with other in-house departments works smoothly.´

´The collaboration with Andreas Ledl and Eva Dörner has become indispensable for us. Andreas Ledl’s level-headed manner and his focus on addressing all involved parties and presenting problems in an abstract way is second to none. Eva Dörner’s chemical expertise undoubtedly rivals that of our in-house chemists while always being one step ahead in negotiations with patent lawyers on the other side. Both leave any ego behind and always have the best possible result for their client in mind. I haven’t seen it that often.´
