The 2018 edition of „World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals“ ranks boesling IP as a leading trademark law firm in Germany. Here is what WTR had to say about the firm and its partners:
“boesling IP has been turning heads in its representation of medium-sized enterprise Hummel Holding on invalidity proceedings against Disney before the EUIPO, and against Nike before the German courts and the European Court of Justice (ECJ) with regard to alleged infringement of its figurative chevron trademark. Banding together for this, Thies Bösling and Inga George are the beating heart of the practice. “Very professional and proactive, Thies provides clear and thorough feedback every step of the way. He’s incisive with third parties, too, which often leads to early settlements – meaning no time-consuming, costly proceedings.” George is known for her go-getter attitude; she is always looking to move a matter forward and tries every tool in her toolbox until the lock turns.”
Thies Bösling and Inga George are also listed as recommended individuals.
In order to develop the rankings for this guide, WTR 1000 interviews and corresponds with lawyers, attorneys and their clients involved with trademarks. Individuals qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources with knowledge of their practice and the market in which they operate. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.
