Assisting Rolls Royce Motor Cars Ltd. on the enforcement of invaluable trademarks against worldwide clothes distributor RedBubble is a standout highlight of late.

A second significant mandate saw the side assisting Deichmann on a string of infringement cases with Vans.

This is just one of the cases which has thrust Carola Onken into the WTR 1000 for 2018. “She keeps her cool in high-pressure situations and is rhetorically very impressive. Her performances are extremely memorable.”

No stranger to the courtroom either, Stefan Abel has been flexing his muscles for Longchamp on thorny battles at the Federal Court of Justice.
