Also ranked is counsel Hellmut Buchroithner, "a soft IP and unfair competition whizz with a sound understanding of clients’ priorities".
In its seventh edition, WTR 1000 is an annual research directory focusing exclusively on trade mark practices and practitioners in over 70 jurisdictions worldwide.
WTR 1000, edition 2017, on Binder Grösswang:
“Efficient, practical and entrepreneurial”, WTR 1000 newcomer Binder Grösswang has swiftly moved to the head of the pack for soft IP services. With a long history in contract law and mergers and acquisitions, it dispenses commercially attuned advice on trademark-driven deals; it recently assisted the International Olympic Committee with branding and film rights licensing. A “strong international focus” allows it to “handle cross-border portfolio management smoothly”, as evidenced by its astute management of global brand rights for Estee Lauder, Lenzing and THQ Nordic, and far-sighted prosecution for LVMH, Superdry and Coca-Cola. A key ally in the fight against fakes, the firm is hawkish in its pursuit of imitators on behalf of brands such as Harley-Davidson. Finding “creative and pragmatic solutions for patrons”, Ivo Rungg is a “service-orientated, top-tier lawyer with a profound comprehension of trademark law”. Backing him up is seasoned counsel Hellmut Buchroithner, a soft IP and unfair competition whizz with a “sound understanding of clients’ priorities”.
