Great news: Kather Augenstein praised by “IAM Patent 1000”

IAM Patent 1000“, the renowned patent media, praises our firm in the publication of the full edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals 2019 – a guide that identifies the best patent experts around the world:

“Kather Augenstein is a name taken seriously in German IP circles. The young litigation boutique has notched up an impressive list of wins in a short time and is being talked about as one of the elite destinations for heavyweight patent litigants. Name partners Peter Kather and Christof Augenstein are the first ports of call for prospective clients. Technically adroit litigator Kather was described by one participant in our research as “a personal hero and one of the most admired people active today in intellectual property” – a sentiment roundly echoed by the rest of the market. “So friendly, never aggressive – a true colleague in every sense of the word, whose pleading can make all the difference.” “He’s quiet, friendly and excellent.” “His knowledge in a number of fields is unusually specific; he’s an esteemed opponent in high-end cases.” Augenstein is also described as “excellent”, with clients especially keen to instruct him in complex mechanical patent infringement cases of all hues. Co-founding partner Miriam Kiefer adds another dimension to the firm – her passion for medical technology patents and excellent advocacy have not gone unnoticed. “Although she isn’t loud or flashy in court, she is calm, analytical and has a lot to offer strategically.” (IAM Patent 1000, 2019)

Our law firm is delighted with this award and sees it as an incentive for future success.
