The Munich-based Ampersand offers legal services across the range of IP and tech law, boasting a team of six dedicated patent professionals. The litigation practice takes in the full sweep of technical areas at all three of Germany’s main patent venues. With an outstanding reputation among his peers, Hosea Haag is a leading light on the litigation circuit. His technical expertise and smooth handling of cross-border disputes are exemplary. SEPs are a particular area of expertise – he acts for WSOU Investments LLC in this area across 23 infringement proceedings involving 16 patents. Clients describe him as “efficient from the start and very thorough in his approach”. Jonathan Konietz is the younger partner, but he has already made a serious splash in Germany’s busy contentious landscape. Known for his dedication and creativity, Konietz has acted alongside Haag for INVTE SP in an SEP case against three opponents.
