iam Patent 1000

We are proud to be commended again in the freshly published 2019 edition of iam Patent 1000:

A gilt-edged adviser on matters of all hues, Hepp Wenger Ryffel is 'one of the best firms in Switzerland, for both contentious and non-contentious work. Enormously experienced, impressively responsive and with excellent knowledge in all technical areas, it is the obvious choice for many.' With clients of the calibre of Teva trusting the firm with Swiss infringement matters, Hepp Wenger Ryffel can claim to possess one of the very best courtroom offerings in the country. Meanwhile, the technically versatile outfit’s prosecution patrons traverse a range of fields, including food processing, medical devices, railways, dentistry and polymer manufacturing. All-sector European patent attorney Martin Wilming is widely admired by the market for his 'technical understanding', 'deep insight' and 'hands-on nature'. He also writes a blog on IP litigation which is spoken of by many peers as 'an absolute must-read, the best blog of its kind in Switzerland'. Of counsel René Wenger is a European and Swiss patent attorney with an outstanding aptitude for drafting, opposition and appeal proceedings and litigation support across a broad spectrum of mechanical engineering areas. Christoph Müller also manoeuvres around the mechanical and electrical engineering landscape, with a special emphasis on medical technology. 'He is easy to work with, responsive and has a natural feel for international case coordination. Christoph is brilliant. He is incredibly knowledgeable, gives clear-cut and hands-on advice, has excellent strategic skills and possesses the ability to phrase arguments perfectly under severe time pressure.' Organic chemist Andreas Welch cut his teeth at a major pharmaceutical player before joining Hepp Wenger Ryffel; he is described as being 'excellent in the life sciences arena – very thorough, and a premier choice for pharmaceutical cases'.
