Kather Augenstein again selected by Wirtschaftswoche

At the end of last year, Wirtschaftswoche again rated the best patent and IP attorneys in its renowned ranking. The jury of experts has once again awarded us “TOP KANZLEI” in the “Patent Law” category. At the same time, Dr Christof Augenstein, Alexander Haertel, Dr Peter Kather, Miriam Kiefer and Christopher Weber are recommended as experts in patent law.

The award is based on a three-stage procedure: The Handelsblatt Research Institute selects 690 patent and IP attorneys from 111 law firms. In a second step, the selected lawyers are asked to name the most renowned colleagues. The resulting list will then be evaluated by a jury of experts. This year, the jury consisted of Jan Eckert (Head of Legal Affairs at ZF Friedrichshafen), Stephan Wolke (CEO at ThyssenKrupp Intellectual Property), Jochen Meyer (Head of Patent Department at Vodafone) and Achim Schunder (Head of Magazines at C.H.Beck). The results of the jury are two lists with the leading law firms for patent attorneys and IP attorneys.

This time we are especially pleased about the award as “TOP KANZLEI 2018”, as we are named with all founding partners of Kather Augenstein and furthermore no other law firm of our size was listed with so many lawyers. The award underlines the high level of our partners, and thus of our entire firm, and is both an incentive and an obligation for us to continue on the path we have chosen.
