IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals now also recommends TALIENS Germany:


Since spinning off from corporate law firm Olswang four years ago, boutique TALIENS has established a thriving cross-border practice, operating out bases in Munich, Paris and Madrid. The “dynamic, highly responsive and patent-savvy” German contingent makes its first appearance in the IAM Patent 1000 this year, impressing for its “no-nonsense working approach which prioritises commercial objectives”. The firm has fast become a fan favourite of telecommunications players, especially for FRAND litigation: in the last year it has acted for ZTE in its seminal dispute against Conversant and represented TCT Mobile Europe in a major FRAND suit against Siemens AG. Leading on both matters and heading up the practice is co-founder Thomas Lynker, a technical renaissance man who has also brought home the wins in pharmaceutical, mechanics and medical technology disputes; he has valuable insider insight from a stint as in-house counsel at Infineon Technologies.”
