Gold - Firms: litigation and transactions

At specialised IP boutique Schwarz Schönherr, the thriving patent litigation practice is complemented by a wealth of auxiliary expertise in related fields, such as corporate, finance and labour law. Its domestic caseload is stacked with pharmaceutical mandates, and Sandoz is one of the companies that recently benefited from the astute counsel of Thomas Adocker and Georg Schönherr. The “tried and true IP lawyers” represented the industry heavyweight in proceedings brought by Merck, which may further develop case law relating to the extent combination products are covered by Supplementary Protection Certificates. Adocker is hailed as “a superb litigator” and has been involved in a litany of multi-jurisdictional disputes over the course of his career. “An eminent figure in the Austrian IP landscape”, Schönherr is also an expert in cross-border settings and leverages his extensive network of foreign associates to bring home big wins.
