Quick facts:

Year of Establishment: 1986

Luthi & Co., established in 1986 by Richard Luthi, is a boutique law firm, which specializes in intellectual property litigation: patents, designs, copyright, trademarks, passing-off, trade secrets, etc. While the firm’s expertise encompasses all areas of intellectual property litigation, it is particularly renowned both in Israel and abroad for its patent litigation practice. The litigation group is headed by Richard Luthi, considered by many to be Israel’s leading patent litigator.

With over 35 years of experience, our firm has been involved in many of the most important intellectual property cases in Israel and has been instrumental in establishing Israeli Intellectual Property jurisprudence.

Our expertise in handling complex IP cases also benefits from the fact that, in addition to law degrees, many members of our team also hold scientific degrees in pharmaceutics, biology, physics etc., as well as advanced business degrees.
Our firm is also frequently retained to assist and advise clients on intellectual property litigation outside Israel.

Our clients include many major multinational and domestic companies in the fields of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, aerospace, communications and high-tech, as well as traditional technology companies such as consumer product manufacturers as well as other companies. The firm also frequently represents start-up companies and individual inventors.

The firm is continuously ranked as a top-tier Intellectual Property firm by the major global law firm ranking organizations such as The Legal 500, Chambers, Managing Intellectual Property and D&B, and has on numerous occasions won awards such as IP Law Firm of the Year. Richard Luthi is personally ranked as a top-rated intellectual property litigator.

In October 2022, Luthi & Co. formed a new IP Group jointly with the leading patent attorney firm Cohn, de Vries, Stadler & Co. (“CDS”), which is called CDS-LUTHI, that offers both litigation and prosecution services of the highest quality.

Following the establishment of the CDS-LUTHI IP Group, Luthi & Co. is the litigation department of the Group and CDS is the prosecution department of the Group.

Together, the Group is able to offer both litigation and prosecution services of the highest quality.
