LAW FIRM

Competent representation before the Federal Supreme Court

In 2007, Friedrich-Wilhelm Engel and Axel Rinkler joined forces to practice their profession together. In accordance with their special admission as lawyers at the Federal Court of Justice, they are only active before this court and the European Court of Justice. They represent their clients in appeals on points of law, non-admission appeals, as well as in appeals in patent nullity cases and preliminary ruling procedures.

"We see ourselves as specialists for proceedings before the Federal Supreme Court, which, based on the work of our pre-instance colleagues, aim to achieve optimum results for our clients in the third instance. It goes without saying that regular teamwork with clients, in-house lawyers, attorneys-at-law and patent attorneys is required. Extensive court files have to be worked through on a regular basis so that the chances of success of the desired appeal can be assessed first. Since we have not yet been involved in the matter, we are unbiased in this aspect. If the appeal is well-founded, it is necessary, using our many years of experience, to examine the case material from the instances in writing and to concentrate on the essential points."

The firm deals with civil law in all its breadth, with a focus on intellectual property, copyright and transport law.

Further information on the special activities of lawyers admitted at the Federal Supreme Court can be found on the website of the Bar Association of the Federal Supreme Court.
