Kather Augenstein is a law firm consisting of 5 partners and 8 lawyers specialising in IP law. This makes our team of 13 IP lawyers larger than many other teams of international law firms in Germany. Our team has years of experience and know-how in IP litigation, especially in the field of patent law. Patents and utility models are the main focus of the work of the lawyers at Kather Augenstein. We have enforced IP rights from all technical fields, in particular telecommunications, automotive, pharmaceuticals, medical technology, biotechnology, nano-technology, mechanical engineering, chemistry and many more.
Our lawyers bring experience from a boutique firm like Preu Bohlig and large law firms like Linklaters and Bird & Bird to the table. This combines the best of "both worlds" of a boutique law firm as well as large international law firms. For each mandate, we form a tailor-made team which advises and represents our clients at the highest level, also in the field of patent law. All of our partners have extensive expertise in all areas of intellectual property law. Kather Augenstein is unique in terms of size and structure. With 13 specialised IP lawyers, we have a powerful team that can work together on a single large case if necessary. This enables us to represent our clients in major litigation as well. Thanks to our firm size, we are more flexible than many large international law firms, as, among other things, the decision-making channels are much shorter.
