Klaka Rechtsanwälte

Ranking: Germany (Tier 2)

KLAKA is renowned for its longstanding representation of household names BMW, Nestlé, UniCredit, Deichmann and Longchamp, but it is also impressively expanding its relationship with the German Football Association, which it won as a client a few years ago and is now both counselling on worldwide prosecution issues and assisting on a significant case before the Federal Patent Court.

With over 25 years’ experience managing portfolios and impressive business nous, Andreas Schulz would make a fine ally for any brand owner. His stablemate Carola Onken steps up to the plate when geographical indication and designation of origin issues arise.

For litigation, Stefan Abel and Ralf Hackbarth are the first names on the team sheet. “Abel is an excellent thinker and easy-going lawyer who is fluent in several languages and always delivers in terms of responsiveness and final work product.” The driven and determined Hackbarth is conducting enforcement proceedings on behalf of BMW against replica rim producers before the upper regional courts of Düsseldorf and Hamburg.
