“A go-to firm in Switzerland, Lenz & Staehelin is simply on top whether it be the quality of work, the experience, or the depth of the team. Renowned for its work in patent litigation and transactional matters, it is definitely a practice you would rather have on your side. Their insights and judgements have proven to be trustworthy.” Widely lauded for his work, “Thierry Calame is a brilliant IP litigator with strong commercial sensibilities. Despite such a vast legal and technical background, he is humble and grounded.” Calame draws on his well-refined strategic skills to represent major market players in complex litigious matters such as infringement and validity. Most notably he represented Schöck against Basys for patents related to structural building components. By his side, Peter Ling “offers swift responses, is open to new ideas and is eager to understand the technical details. Utilising his patent law knowledge, he is determined to provide comprehensive advice and achieve the best solution for the client.” As a testament to his strengths, he has been enlisted by Apple to support their defence against a non-practising entity seeking to enforce patents for information transmission technology.
