Our Firm

We provide support in all areas of Intellectual Property Law, especially in patent, trademark, utility model, design, licensing and unfair competition law as well as in all related fields. In these areas of law we represent our clients in the prosecution and enforcement (litigation) of their intellectual property rights, including in patent infringement cases and defending against third partys in opposition, cancellation and nullity proceedings.

Müller Fottner Steinecke has been recommended several times as a leading patent and law firm in the fields of Intellectual Property, trademarks and patents, in particular regarding pharmaceuticals, Biotech and medical devices, the German legal research directory JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms, the Who’s Who Legal: Germany 2018 as well as the German Handbook “kanzleimonitor.de”. The latter results are based on a survey among Corporate Lawyers’ recommendations of law/patent firms conducted by the Bundesverband der Unternehmensjuristen e.V. (BUJ-Federal Association of German Corporate Lawyers/Inhouse Counsels).
