In the field of patent litigation, the team provides by far the most complete package of services in the areas of physics, technology and software, resulting in a high success rate in both defence and attack in patent infringement and nullity actions. There are few who work at a similar level.

Two aspects stand out: Expertise in patent infringement proceedings and technical depth, e.g. conducting extensive technical experiments to gain knowledge.

One of BDPE’s outstanding strengths is its responsiveness. Any concerns are dealt with promptly and competently. BDPE is characterised by its extensive experience, particularly in patent infringement proceedings, which makes the team the ideal partner.

Proficiency in all three official languages of the EPO with partners who are native French speakers, which is an asset for a German law firm when dealing with patent matters in French.

„The firm is setting new standards for Germany in the fields of physics, electrical engineering and electronics as well as mechanical patent disputes.“

Recommended law firm for patent litigation/patent attorneys (3 Stars) | More

„This IP boutique from Düsseldorf and Munich is one of the most active litigation outfits on the patent attorney side before the German civil courts and EPO. With a strong market position, the team led by Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus and Friedrich Emmerling has an excellent reputation for litigation in complex mobile communications cases.

The firm’s experience in defending clients against SEP claims stands out. Here, the team has seen much activity for Deutsche Telekom before the German courts of late. Also, one new client is Chinese semiconductor manufacturer Goodix, known for touch displays and which the firm is defending against an attack by Wavetouch involving implementation patents.

As Huawei increasingly enforces its own patents for 5G standards and wifi technology, the firm supports its regular client more and more in active suits before the German infringement courts. In cooperation with Clifford Chance, Braun-Dullaeus Pannen Emmerling is also playing a part in Huawei’s first UPC suit against Netgear. In other campaigns, Huawei depends on the patent attorneys at its second go-to advisor in Germany, Mitscherlich.

Braun-Dullaeus Pannen Emmerling also litigates in other technological fields when the stakes are high, for example the e-cigarette dispute for Philip Morris. There has been a recent rise in patent filing and litigation in renewable energies – for Huawei but also for other companies.

Strengths: Litigation, mainly over mobile communications and electronics patents.

Recommended individuals: Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus (“very sound research, very high rate of success in nullity cases”, client), Friedrich Emmerling (“best patent attorney for SEP prosecution and litigation”, competitor; both patent attorneys)

Highly recommended individual: Friedrich Emmerling, recommended individuals: Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dulllaeus and Markus Kreuzberg

„The small but mighty patent attorney boutique Braun-Dullaeus Pannen Emmerling is laser focused on supplying the very best support for litigious matters, from infringement through nullity proceedings. The team has an especially sophisticated grasp on SEPs in mobile communications and connected cars. In Munich, practice leader Friedrich Emmerling earns accolades: “Fritz is the best patent attorney you will find in Germany or even the EU. He has a deep technical understanding of telecommunications and abundant litigation experience. He does not limit himself to the tried and true – he is able to think outside of the box to further aid the client. He is supported by an able and sizeable team, dedicated to achieving the patron’s objectives.” The other named partner is Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus in Dusseldorf. Braun-Dullaeus has 20 years’ experience in the patent profession and has devoted 15 of those to perfecting his work in contentious matters. He delivers high-quality German and European prosecution for Deutsche Telekom AG and Hochland SE. Three other top-notch patent attorneys at the firm all bring technical expertise and industry experience to their arsenal. Markus Kreuzberg worked as an engineer in metal processing before moving into the patent profession, while Franck Klein gained invaluable sector specialism in the mobile communications industry and Jörg Kohlschmidt was employed for more than 15 years as a development and systems engineer at mobile phone and semiconductor manufacturers. Klein and Kohlschmidt support Emmerling in his opposition work for Huawei, while Kreuzberg joins Braun-Dullaeus for VVG-Befestigungstechnik GmbH & Co KG and Honsel Umformtechnik GmbH. Klein also dishes up high-value oppositions for Adidas AG.“

Highly recommended individual: Friedrich Emmerling, recommended individuals: Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dulllaeus and Markus Kreuzberg

“BDPE comprises service-oriented patent attorneys who go above and beyond for their clients. The attorneys exhibit the knowledge level of top technical specialists and, through this, light can be shed on weak arguments of the opposite party. The team is always on top of the technology and creative in finding the right legal solution. Its dedication to its work, combined with exceptional resource management clearly distinguishes it from other patent attorney firms in Germany.” Responsible for the above feedback and giving the outfit its name are physicists Friedrich Emmerling and Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus. Emmerling counts Huawei among his many high-profile patrons and receives top plaudits for his work: “He has continually demonstrated not only his impeccable technical expertise, but also his close attention to detail, despite a huge number of cases. He is certainly a pleasure to work with, being not only highly respected among his peers and colleagues, but also with the courts. More importantly, Friedrich can think from the commercial perspective – a unique thing not many outside attorneys are capable of.” Braun-Dullaeus also receives high praise, with clients confirming that he “focuses on understanding business and provides constructive suggestions in difficult situations”. “It has been Karl-Ulrich’s strategic masterpiece to join forces with Friedrich Emmerling. With the joint forces of their respective teams, Fritz and Karl-Ulrich are able to accommodate not only the needs of demanding clients but also handle numerous large litigations in parallel.” Joining the pair in the guide this year is Markus Kreuzberg, who brings experience as an engineer in the metal processing industry to his work prosecuting patents and defending them before the registry offices.” | More

Recommended law firm for patent litigation/patent attorneys (3 Stars) | More

“This patent attorney team is one of the most active in patent litigation before the German courts and the EPO. The two name partners Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus and Friedrich Emmerling enjoy excellent names when it comes to mobile communications and electrical engineering patents.

Recent times have seen them working once again for Deutsche Telekom and Huawei in many SEP suits brought by NPEs. Although both mobile communications companies often work with other patent attorney firms, they always choose BDPE for their high-stakes proceedings. The team’s vast experience in SEPs and FRAND aspects was the reason why Continental selected the team to represent it in the connected cars suits as co-litigant for Daimler.

The firm’s litigation experience is now appreciated beyond mobile communications actions, as highlighted in the global e-cigarette dispute for Philip Morris against BAT. Very close relationships with law firms like Hoyng ROKH Monegier help open the door to such work.

The firm sets itself clearly apart from competing patent attorney firms with its strong focus on patent litigation. Even strong competitors like Maikowski & Ninnemann or Cohausz & Florack opt for far more comprehensive prosecution activity. This difference could soon be a thing of the past, however, as BDPE is currently in a transitional phase and is looking to build up more patent prosecution work.” | More

“Commercially focused boutique Braun-Dullaeus Pannen Emmerling arrives in the IAM Patent 1000 this year on a wave of client commendations: “Its advice is clear, well thought out and applicable across multiple jurisdictions; and the team is detail oriented, sensible and shows great judgement.” With legal and technical expertise in abundance, it has made annulment actions something of a specialty: it is currently involved in 5% of all such pending proceedings in Germany. In the spotlight is physicist Friedrich Emmerling, who has been appearing in oppositions and drafting applications for Huawei, while also representing adidas at the EPO. “Friedrich’s attention to detail is immaculate and he recalls all of the issues straight away, so you can discuss any point with him instantly. He is one of the best German patent attorneys out there and has a good feel for what will work before the courts.” Fellow namesake and physicist Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus is “an impressive analyst” with “broad knowledge of SEP procedure” and the ability to handle a challenging number of cases inparallel.” | More

“This patent attorney team has only been operating in this setup for two years and is already one of the most active in patent litigation before German courts, especially when it comes to mobile communications and electrical engineering patents. The two name-partners Karl-Ulrich Braun-Dullaeus and Friedrich Emmerling enjoy an excellent reputation in this field, partly for their litigation for two companies often taken to court by NPEs: Deutsche Telekom and Huawei. Both mobile communications giants, however, also work with other patent attorney firms. Nonetheless, Emmerling’s work in a dispute involving photovoltaic patents demonstrates just how firmly he sits in the saddle for Huawei. Thanks to its vast litigation experience involving standard essential patents, Continental, one of the central interveners for Daimler, has also hired the firm for the dispute with Nokia and Conversant over connected cars patents. Huawei was also represented as intervener in this dispute. The firm can be seen in a central battle in another sector, too: Braun-Dullaeus represented Philip Morris along with Hoyng ROKH Monegier in a global series of suits by BAT over e-cigarettes. A strong focus on patent litigation is what sets the firm clearly apart from competing patent attorney firms. Even fierce competitors such as Maikowski & Ninnemann or Cohausz & Florak are reliant on more extensive prosecution practices.“
