JUVE, Germany’s most prestigious legal publication, selected Quinn Emanuel as both the “IP Law Firm of the Year” and the “Patent Law Firm of the Year” for 2012. It is the first time in history that a U.S.-based law firm was so honored.
Each year, JUVE recognizes significant achievements in a number of practice areas. In selecting Quinn Emanuel for this prestigious award, the editors cited the number of high-profile, challenging (and ultimately successful) cases—particularly in the smartphone wars—in which the firm represented Samsung and Motorola. JUVE noted that, “Quinn Emanuel has become the leading law firm on the android side of the smartphone wars.”
Quinn Emanuel opened its first German office in Mannheim in 2010 led by Dr. Marcus Grosch, formerly the head of Allen & Overy’s German IP practice. In 2012, the firm opened its second German office in Hamburg led by Dr. Nadine Herrmann, formerly chair of Allen & Overy’s German IP practice. Quinn Emanuel has 24 IP lawyers in Germany. The firm’s German lawyers advise clients in all areas of intellectual property and antitrust litigation, in particular in the areas of patent, design, copyright, trademark and EU competition law.
