"Crown-jewel IP assets are treated with utmost care and skill at Rentsch Partner. The firm is among the country’s premier destinations for holistic brand protection, combining the skill and strength of 29 patent attorneys and legal practitioners, all of whom are leaders in their respective fields. Banding together, Gregor Wild, Matthias Städeli, Christian Hilti, Demian Stauber, Magda Streuli-Youssef and Maria Iskic tackle unique and disruptive technologies head on and thrive at the intersection of technology and IP. Group captain Wild is hailed by peers for his “great spirit, stunning theoretical knowledge and excellence in all aspects of trademark law”. Whether trademark procurement, enforcement or enhancement is the order of the day, Städeli is a safe pair of hands; while Hilti and Stauber are eminent names in Switzerland for their formidable contentious capabilities. “Demian is impressive in all that he does – I would recommend him for everything,” comments one peer. “A doyenne of Swiss IP”, Streuli-Youssef is regularly instructed on seismic, industry-shifting mandates. Rounding off the group is newly elected partner Iskic: “Maria is smart, pragmatic and clear in her advice; she is truly excellent”."
World Trademark Review 1000 2022: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals
IAM Patent 1000
"Pioneering boutique Rentsch Partner stands out from the crowd for its comprehensive approach to intellectual property. Combining the talents of both patent attorneys and lawyers under one roof, it can cover all bases for its high-flying technology and pharmaceutical clientele. The hardest hitters include Christian Hilti and Demian Stauber, who bring the heat in big-ticket litigation. A calm but commanding presence in the courtroom, Hilti has over three decades of experience and the market recognition to show for it, having chalked up many a landmark victory along the way. Stauber is lauded for his versatility: his sweet spot is at the confluence of IP, IT and contract law, where he crafts persuasive arguments for leading technology companies embroiled in disputes and assists small start-ups with their software agreements. On the prosecution front, Dany Vogel, Alfred Köpf, Louis Lagler and Andrea Carreira set the standard of excellence. Software instructions and computer-implemented inventions are meat and drink to the “super-sharp” Vogel; while Köpf devises “long-lasting and reliable strategies” in the life sciences and mechanical industries. An authority in the electrical and optical fields, Lagler “drafts patents efficiently and with a fantastic technical understanding, all while targeting a broad claim. He is responsive, reliable and great at coordinating multi-jurisdictional filings”. Joining them in the guide this year is Carreira, a prime choice for litigation support. The trained chemist relishes the nitty-gritty of complex matters and has the determination to take her cases all theway."
