World Trademark Review 1000, 2021: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals
WTR 1000, 2021 – Germany – Tier 2
Big-name clients such as BMW have KLAKA Rechtsanwälte on speed dial, confident in the comprehensiveness of its offering and its personalised, dedicated approach. Food and drug law sage Andreas Schulz has spent 25 years manoeuvring both German and international companies out of tricky contentious scenarios; cut from a similar cloth, colleague Stefan Abel does likewise for many French clients, as well as major players in the luxury goods and sports sectors. Peers recognise him as an “excellent thinker and easy-going lawyer who is fluent in several languages”. Fellow polyglot Carola Onken speaks English, French and Spanish on top of her mother tongue – a poised performer before the General Court and the CJEU, she also drafts and reviews licensing agreements with an appraising eye. Also on board is Ralf Hackbarth, whose trademark counsel is embellished with internet and domain name lawinsights.
