The patent and law office of Maiwald has its roots in Munich, Europe’s core patent center. Most of the roughly 250 people at Maiwald work out of the Munich office.
Our clients are very happy with the central location. Our offices are located in the Elisenhof in the immediate vicinity of Munich Central Station and close to almost all forms of public transportation: bus, underground, suburban railway and taxi ranks. The most important patent offices and courts are located in Munich; the European Patent Office (EPA), the Regional Court of Munich and the Upper Regional Court of Munich are within walking distance of our offices, and the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) and the Federal Patent Court (BPatG) are also within easy and fast reach.
The Düsseldorf office, comprising a team of patent attorneys with an engineering background and attorneys-at-law, opened in 2001.
Düsseldorf is a particularly attractive location, because the Regional Court of Düsseldorf includes a highly renowned patent litigation chamber and is therefore one of the most important infringement courts in Germany. Moreover, Düsseldorf is situated at the heart of the metropolitan region of Rhine-Ruhr, one of Europe’s largest industrial clusters.
