"Sources have no hesitation in describing Schoenherr as a premier practice for IP work."Chambers Europe

Headed by renowned Vienna partner Guido Kucsko, the Schoenherr ip practice group has long-standing experience in trademark, design, patent, copyright and unfair competition matters. Its members frequently represent parties in ground-breaking court cases in national and European courts. The team is also active in brand enforcement such as combating product and software piracy, including customs seizures and domain disputes. The practice group is particularly strong in trademark and design prosecution and portfolio management. It also offers an integrated service on contentious and non-contentious ip, it, and new technology-related issues and advises on m&a and finance transactions with an ip/it focus. Other core areas are food and drug law, life sciences and unfair competition.
