HOFFMANN EITLE has retained its strong position in this year's edition of the IAM 1000.
In the EPO section of the ranking guide, the firm is placed in the gold band together with just five other firms in Europe. The firm also has four recommended European Patent Attorneys (Thorsten Bausch, Morten Garberg, Leo Polz and Joe Taormino). This confirms HOFFMANN EITLE's position, as no other law firm in Europe has as many ranked attorneys.
Also in the Germany section, HOFFMANN EITLE is favourably reviewed. The firm is placed in the gold band in the table "prosecution and nullity" and is "recommended" in the area of IP transactions. A bronze ranking was achieved for our infringement work, where the firm is described as “a notable player”. HOFFMANN EITLE has nine attorneys listed (Thorsten Bausch, Thomas Becher, Veit Frank, Morten Garberg, Peter Klusmann, Leo Polz, Joachim Renken, Andreas Stefferl and Joe Taormino), which is more than any other firm in the Germany section.
The IAM Patent 1000 recommends those it considers to be the leaders in their field: only those delivering top-quality patent services are included. According to researchers firms placed in the ‘gold’ band are those that attract the most positive comments, and are identified as the crème de la crème, their success hinging on reputations established over lengthy periods of time. HOFFMANN EITLE is pleased to be considered to belong to this elite group.
