JUVE Patent Ranking 2022: Kather Augenstein ranks again among the top IP firms and leading IP specialists in Germany

Every year, law firms are subjected to comprehensive evaluations in rankings. We are very pleased that Kather Augenstein was again able to defend its ranking of previous years in the current edition of the highly regarded JUVE Patent Ranking 2022.

Kather Augenstein continues to be awarded four stars in the second highest rating and is listed in the third highest group in the patent litigation/lawyers category.

In addition to the strength for litigation, JUVE Patent in this year’s evaluation particularly emphasizes the European orientation of our boutique firm in the upcoming representation of our clients before the Unified Patent Court. Read the full analysis here. Florian Müller’s (FOSS Patents) perspective on the JUVE ranking is also interesting, read here.

Furthermore, we are again represented in the category Leading Individuals: In addition to our senior partner Dr. Peter Kather, our partner Christopher Weber is again singled out as the leading advisor among Germany’s litigation attorneys in patent law.

A special thanks to our clients and peers, who give special recognition to no less than four of our partners and IP specialists. Dr Peter Kather “really gets to now the technology deeply” underlines a competitor, while Miriam Kiefer is rated as “very competent” and recognised for “her very good case management” by clients. Christopher Weber is valued for his special endurance, “he does not give up until he has found a legally viable solution in the client’s interest”, says a fellow competitor. In Christof Augenstein’s case, his “international view of interaction between of European patent court proceedings” is particularly in focus.

“The excellent rating of our firm is never the result of a single person, it is the result of our entire team. The current JUVE Patent Ranking 2022 is based on feedback of our clients and peers, which we are very proud of. We see this as a further incentive to face the challenge of the Unified Patent Court as a highly specialised boutique law firm and thank the experts for their recommendations”, says our Managing Partner Miriam Kiefer.
