Legal All Stars 2021: German Business Magazine WirtschaftsWoche awards Senior Partner Dr Peter Kather as top lawyer in the category Patent Law

Dr. Peter Kather has been awarded 2nd place by German Business Magazine WirtschaftsWoche in its current ranking of “Legal All Stars 2021” in the legal field of patent law, and thus ranks among the top three lawyers in his field in Germany.

“This award for Dr Kather reflects not only his outstanding patent law expertise, but also the high reputation he enjoys not only among clients and competitors, but especially among judges,” says Miriam Kiefer, Managing Partner of Kather Augenstein.

The entire team of Kather Augenstein sincerely congratulates its namesake and senior partner on this special award!

For the second time, the Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI), in the course of the ranking launched in 2020, surveyed almost 23,000 business lawyers on their most renowned competitors from 25 specialist areas. The survey resulted in a list that was evaluated by a jury of experts consisting of in-house lawyers, professors, litigation financiers and consultants, so that a ranking with a total of 75 lawyers from 52 law firms could be compiled and finally three “Legal All Stars” emerged from each legal field.

The ranking of the Legal All Stars was published in the 18 february 2022 issue of WirtschaftsWoche. The complete overview of all Legal All Stars 2021 by legal area can be found here.
