Overview

Cohausz & Florack is a law firm founded in 1954 comprising 28 patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law as well as about 100 employees. The multidisciplinary law firm has offices in Duesseldorf and Munich. The firm supports its clients – international companies as well as medium-sized companies in Germany – in all matters relating to intellectual property rights and unfair competition, in many cases having done so for decades. This includes, among other services, the drafting and filing, administration and licensing of extensive property rights portfolios, searches for third-party intellectual property rights and the associated Freedom-to-Operate expert opinions as well as cooperation agreements. C&F also represents its clients in proceedings concerning infringement and validity of intellectual property rights. The firm sees itself as a strong partner and advises its clients proactively, individually and holistically on all IP-relevant issues. To this end, the 24 patent attorneys and 4 attorneys-at-law possess particular expertise in their respective fields and work together in an interdisciplinary, efficient and trusting team.

C&F combines the know-how of all technical fields under one roof: from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and ICT to chemistry and life sciences. In addition, C&F has extensive experience with IP proceedings in other countries, including not only EU member states, but also the USA, China, and Korea.
