The German news magazine FOCUS listed BARDEHLE PAGENBERG as one of the top corporate law firms in the categories patent, trademark and design law in its special October/November issue with the title “Germany’s top lawyers”. Last year, the firm – which specializes in the protection of Intellectual Property – was already listed in FOCUS’ special issue in the legal area “patent law”. This year, the legal areas “trademark and design law” were added.
In its special edition the magazine introduces a total of 800 leading lawyers and corporate law firms and identifies the top firms for 24 legal areas. Under the heading “experts for complex cases” BARDEHLE PAGENBERG is being characterized as a law firm that – besides its competence in trademark, design and patent law – also masters technically complex topics. In addition, FOCUS attests the firm – besides being recommended by colleagues – an above-average recommendation rate given by clients in all categories.
For the creation of the top law firms list 2,600 attorneys from corporate law firms and lawyers from corporate legal departments recommended their colleagues outside of their own law firm/company. In total, more than 18,500 recommendations were evaluated.
