Best Lawyers honors 4 lawyers of Kather Augenstein

Every year, the renowned US publishing house Best Lawyers publishes a ranking of the best lawyers for Germany. We are pleased that the publishing house recommends 4 lawyers of Kather Augenstein for IP this year.

In the eleventh edition of the Best Lawyers Ranking, our partners Dr Peter Kather, Dr Christof Augenstein, Alexander Haertel and Christopher Weber received awards. In cooperation with the Handelsblatt, Best Lawyers annually determines the most renowned German lawyers from various fields of law. The interesting thing about the Best Lawyers award is that colleagues nominate other colleagues and indicate who they consider to be recommendable outside their own firm if they are unable to handle a case themselves. This is precisely what makes the awards and the associated feedback from experts so meaningful and gratifying.

For this reason, we are very pleased to be awarded once again as one of the best law firms in Germany for Intellectual Property Law.
