Prüfer & Partner mbB is one of Germany’s most renowned IP law firms specializing in IP rights. Prüfer & Partner protects clients’ ideas, inventions and product developments around the world and enforces their claims in court – whether technical inventions or other IP rights. Today, nearly 60 employees – including 21 patent attorneys, attorneys at law and patent specialists – work for this renowned IP boutique.

Prüfer & Partner was founded in 1972 as a pure patent attorneys’ office, which quickly developed into an internationally focused medium-sized law firm specializing in IP law. A successful generation change took place between 1998 and 2002, when Prüfer & Partner was taken over by patent attorneys Dr. Dorothea Hofer, Jürgen Feldmeier and Dr. Andreas Oser. Since then, Prüfer & Partner has grown into a firm of nearly 60 employees.

Prüfer & Partner is an established and highly respected medium-sized law firm with a stable global network of partners, which advises clients registering IP rights, supports clients in all issues relating to IP rights protection, and defends and enforces clients’ IP rights in court.

With Prüfer & Partner, you can expect a strong and carefully selected community of patent attorneys, lawyers and technical specialists. The firm represents its clients’ interests at the highest level. Prüfer & Partner is familiar with the support of complex and demanding mandates and works with great commitment.

Diligence and expertise play an important role in industrial property law protection. Therefore, Prüfer & Partner patent attorneys and lawyers work strictly to German quality standards: thorough, punctual and cost-efficient.

Over the past 10 years, Prüfer & Partner has continuously expanded its expertise in patent and trademark litigation. Dr. Hofer and Mr. Feldmeier have been advising their client Brother Industries for years in a complex patent dispute concerning ink cartridges. Dr. Oser supports the pharmaceutical industry, including assisting Novartis in building up its patent portfolio. Other Prüfer & Partner attorneys, including Christian Einsel, also regularly litigate both active and passive patent lawsuits. In addition, Marion Ziliox works for French and Asian clients, among others, in customs actions at EU borders. As a result, Prüfer & Partner has well-founded expertise in the entire IP field.

The Asian region has been playing an increasingly important role in the global economy for many years. It has developed into an important production location for both large and medium-sized companies. At the same time, China in particular is rapidly catching up in terms of innovative business models and products. Prüfer & Partner continuously cultivates business in China and in the Asian countries – especially in Japan. Counselling clients from these countries regarding their IP affairs in Europe and supporting European clients doing business in Asia is a strength of Prüfer & Partner’s practice.

Located in Munich, the German heart of intellectual property, Prüfer & Partner is dedicated to serving its clients as a one-stop-shop IP boutique.
