CBH’s patent litigation team is being recommended regularly: “well-positioned in patents” (JUVE Patent 2021/2022); “The team of CBH has the client’s best interest in mind when advising on patent litigation. CBH’s attorneys cooperate with the client and the patent attorneys team to find solutions in line with the client’s economic goals”, “CBH’s team is optimally composed. Stephan Gruber is something of a legend in patent litigation and tangibly passes on his experience to his younger colleagues – when working together, I see that the team works excellently.” (Legal500 2021/2022).
