Intellectual Property specialists Prüfer & Partner are celebrating as the firm together with its Managing Partner Andreas Jacob were listed in the prestigious ranking Word Trademark Review WTR 1000 2022. Consistently listed in WTR 1000’s sister publication, the IAM Patent 1000, Prüfer & Partner makes its first appearance in the trademark rankings this year thanks to its growing profile on the soft IP side and to the efforts of Andreas Jacob, who was recommended by WTR for his anti-counterfeiting knowledge.
What the ranking said
WTR recognized Prüfer & Partner as “it is sought after for portfolio management and enforcement work both online and offline – and increasingly for litigation, thanks to the efforts of Andreas Jacob” and emphasized that its “State-of-the-art IT systems and digital solutions keep it ahead of the curve, while a sizeable worldwide network renders it highly capable on the global stage”.
As a listed individual, Andreas Jacob was recommended for his “rarely seen level of anti-counterfeiting knowledge”. As a managing partner of the firm, Jacob has recently been masterminding several trademark infringement actions for Knorr-Bremse, as well as managing its filing strategy and guiding the IP aspects of the restructuring of its entire product portfolio.
