In the currently published edition of the internationally recognized law firm ranking, our two name partners Dr Peter Kather and Dr Christof Augenstein are again particularly highlighted as leaders in intellectual property law, The Legal 500 quotes on its website as follows: “Peter Kather and Christof Augenstein are the partners of choice.
