HAUCK

Comment: A respected patent attorney practice and one of the most visible filing firms in north Germany. For its size, which has been small for years, Hauck handles a substantial amount of filing – often initial filing for its strong Mittelstand client base. The patent attorneys are raising their visibility in litigation, esp. in opposition and nullity suits. Infringement proceedings, on the other hand, are only conducted occasionally by the patent attorneys for regular clients.
Strengths: Prosecution with technical expertise in engineering patents.
Recommended: Philipp Mönkemeyer, Dr. Peter Schildberg (“highly motivated”, client).
Practice: Clear focus on patent prosecution with technical specialties in electronics, mechanics, medical technology, chemical engineering and power engineering. Patent litigation is generally conducted with external lawyers. Clients: many notable north German companies and some global corporates. (Core team: 6 patent attorneys)
Clients: ?? Filing for Nordex and opposition suit against GE concerning wind power; prosecution and infringement proceedings for Eppendorf; frequent filing for Fette, ITW, Jungheinrich, Nordic Yards.
