JUVE HANDBOOK OF GERMAN COMMERCIAL LAW FIRMS

Since the inception of the rankings in the "JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms", Lorenz Seidler Gossel has always been listed as one of the leading law firms in trademark law and design law. We were named "Law Firm of the Year in the Field of Intellectual Property" in 2006. 

  • "Solid as a rock, this leading firm in trademarks and unfair competition is standing its ground in the market. LSG offers the whole gamut of IP, but the lawyers are esteemed and feared for their vast litigation presence on the side of notable trademark holders such as Adidas - most recently against Nike concerning deceptive advertising for soccer shoes. Though the partners have enjoyed a loyal client base for years and are highly visible thanks to litigation work, the associates could increase their visibility." (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2016) 
  • " ...they are consistently recommended due to their exceptional legal expertise." Their clients reward the combination of the two with loyalty, frequently over many years, so that LSG is still the law firm with one of the highest presences before court (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2013/2014)
  • The Munich IP boutique firm is one of the leading law firms in patent proceedings and for applications. With one of the few Chinese patent attorneys in Germany among its own ranks, LSG can now increasingly acquire inbound business from China (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2013/2014).

One client praised the team for its "many years of experience in the field of IP protection with in-depth and specific knowledge in individual aspects (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2012/2013).
  • "Competitors praise the "legal quality" of the partners, but also continually stress the zeal with which LSG traditionally acts against their opponents. However, many clients have put their trust in the law firm for many years for just this reason." (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2011/2012
  • "A leading IP boutique in trademark law and competition law. (...) Clients and competitors remain impressed by the presence of the attorneys before the court. (...) An extremely stable client structure (JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms 2010/2011)
