Dr. Arno Riße LL.M. (University of Auckland) is one of the firm’s partners. He specialises in intellectual property law, and, in particular, in patent law.

Legal 500 praises the “very  meticulous” Arno Riße as an “outstanding team player” and “future star”. He is also continuously recommended in the JUVE Handbook.

The firm’s patent practice is recommended as a “well established and powerful team” with “strength and depth” in Legal 500, “in particular for difficult patent proceedings where the team meets highest standards in timing and quality” and “whose briefs are ‘a miracle of structure and precision and at that written to the point and a pleasure to read'”. The patent practice is further continuously recommended as one of the global top 1000 in IAM Patent 1000 (“The team does a wonderful and very detailed job. Its members are very meticulous and able to navigate complex scenarios and uncertain jurisprudence”). Chambers quote clients: “The lawyers are very good, with the experience to know what the real issues are in a case and focus their efforts there. They are creative and go the extra mile. You get quick responses and great answers.” and “It is a high-quality, successful firm with a very good track record. The partners are always on top of the case.”
