Wirtschaftswoche has once again awarded Kather Augenstein

Wirtschaftswoche has once again awarded us the title of “WiWo Top Patent Law Firm”. Only last year we received the award, now we can defend it. We think: A great success for all colleagues in our firm – it shows that the work for our clients is at the highest level and regularly with the necessary view beyond the purely legal part in these cases.

In addition, we are pleased that our colleagues Miriam Kiefer, Dr. Peter Kather and Dr. Christof Augenstein have also been recommended as “TOP Attorneys 2019”. The ranking is published once a year by Wirtschaftswoche and Handelsblatt Research Institute. More than 1,260 lawyers in 168 law firms were surveyed this year, and the selected lawyers were asked to name their most renowned colleagues. The resulting list was evaluated by a jury of experts.

After this year’s nomination for the Managing IP Awards and the awards of Legal 500, IP Stars, Best Lawyers and IAM Patent 1000, it is yet another award for our work, which is a great pleasure for all of us and an incentive for further success.
