WTR Honors FGvW Trademark Practice

The trademark law team of Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner has been included for the first time in the ranking of the 1000 leading experts in trademark law worldwide. The annual "WTR 1000 - The World's Leading Trademark Professionals" published by World Trademark Review magazine is one of the most important international awards in the field of intellectual property.

We are very pleased about this recognition, which is explained in more detail below: The team around trademark lawyers Norbert Hebeis and Morton Douglas in Freiburg, David Kipping in Cologne and Stephan Dittl in Frankfurt is described the firm of choice for companies including Wilkinson Sword, Novartis AG and Dr Martens – a fact that speaks to both its refined quality and its reputation abroad. With offices in Cologne, Frankfurt and Freiburg, the company has Southwestern Germany amply covered.  

David Kipping and Stephan Dittl are vital links in the chain. Kipping is “a tenacious litigator who knows what it takes to win in the courtroom”. “He is very responsive, aligns his pragmatic advice with patrons’ business objectives and often dodges costly litigation proceedings by achieving favorable out-of-court settlements.” Dittl is a similarly reliable business partner. His brand research, comprehensive strategic advice and dispute preparation are first rate.

Both are recommended - in addition to the firm as such - also as "individuals" and are ranked in tier 3.

The complete ranking can be viewed here.
