WTR 1000 2022WTR

"Zurich-based Rentsch Partner provides holistic brand-related services, thanks to a model by which it handles prosecution and litigation and enforcement matters on an integrated basis. Another USP of the firm is a deep bench; it has 31 lawyers and patent attorneys, many of whom bring high-level trademark expertise to the table. Rentsch Partner is in a good groove at the moment; its filing numbers are up in terms of Swiss and international trademark applications and it has recently taken significant steps in its move towards a paperless future. The ensemble’s top brand specialist is Gregor Wild, a global IP thinker who makes light work of managing valuable worldwide trademark portfolios. The practice identifies four other partners as leading trademark experts – Maria Iskic, Matthias Städeli, Christian Hilti and Demian Stauber – all of whom also make the WTR 1000 cut. Iskic is an expert in the consumer goods, life sciences and computing fields and a talented transactional and disputes practitioner. Städeli is in his element in complex litigation involving multiple types of claim. Hilti is a thought leader who has published important works on IP and competition law; he is also a seasoned practitioner with a strong following in the luxury field. Stauber is a key contact for innovative companies in need of litigation and licensing support."

IAM Patent 1000

"Exceptional on both the contentious and non-contentious fronts, Rentsch Partner is a fantastic choice for companies who are looking for a one-stop shop patent offering, thanks to its unique position on the Swiss market. Operating out of the dispute division are Christian Hilti and Demian Stauber. “Super professional, diligent, thorough and smart, Christian’s advice is always helpful. He is always well prepared for court hearings, and his vast experience is reflected in everything he does, all of which gives his clients a great sense of confidence. To top it off, he is lovely to work with too.” PhD Stauber operates at the intersection of IP, IT and contract law, where he supports technology companies in high-stakes and commercially consequential skirmishes before the Federal Patent Court. The prosecution line-up is made up of all-stars Louis Lagler, Dany Vogel, Alfred Köpf and Andrea Carreira. “Louis and his team are very structured and efficient in their work. They engage very deeply with inventors and help stretch the ideas, start with the broadest possible claims and work their way in. They listen to their clients’ needs, help them manage budgets and, ultimately, the end result always produces top-quality patents.” Vogel and Köpf are both part-time judges at the Federal Patent Court alongside their respective practices. The former is a computer software specialist, while the latter is highly adept in the life sciences and mechanical fields. Carreira is up there with the best of the best when it comes to life sciences work. Her PhD and her 25 years of experience make her a discerning choice for litigationsupport."
