We welcome a further recommendation of WTR 1000*

"Established more than 40 years ago, KUHNEN & WACKER ticks every box on the trademark front. Filings, opposition proceedings, litigation and border seizures are all in a day's work for the outfit, which continues to grow and took on several new staff members this year. "The team are outstanding and always provide timely and practical advice. They give clear cost estimates before beginning projects and always stick to them."
Leading the charge is Christian Thomas, a seasoned IP adviser and litigator who frequently appears before the German civil courts, the Federal German Patent Court and the CJEU, and understands the intricacies of obtaining IP protection for spare parts and accessories."

*WTR 1000 is the world's only independent multimedia publication dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues for in-house and private practitioners internationally.
