How We Do It

Specialization. Passion. Experience.

ZIERHUT IP. is considered one of the top boutique law firms for Intellectual Property in Germany. Our success is the result of our passion for our client’s products and ideas, brands and designs and patents, and proximity to our clients, regardless of their size or status.


We do not have to deal with a multitude of different legal issues, but can instead focus on the intellectual property of our clients and better organize our working hours, and have significantly more time for our clients as colleagues without specialization. Also, the continuing education is much more intense and thorough. Mandates can be processed not only more efficient in terms of time, but also more legally qualified.


Sound expertise and intense practical experience combine with passion and creativity. The last is for us like the salt in the soup. An ingredient that matters when you want to be successful not just “on behalf” but also – in the interests of our clients.

Because legal success is no coincidence!


comes through years of successful legal work. For over 16 years, we have been advising on the start-up to the multi-million dollar brand in all areas of intellectual property. In the year 2002 I created with the “Lawyer 24 AG” the first lawyer joint stock company, which was approved by the bar association of Munich. This ANWALT AG is doing business today under the name ZIERHUT IP. and acts of the Maximilianstr. 33 right in the heart of Munich.

One goal might be to win the case …

For smaller, startup clients facing bet-the-company litigation against bigger, better-funded competitors, the cost of litigation may itself threaten the company’s continued viability. In those situations, we may try to get traction on critical issues at the outset of the case while aggressively containing costs through proactive discovery management. In these cases, I draw the discussion down to the essentials and try to prevent the parties being distracted by side-effects.

An entirely different goal may be to build up as much pressure as possible, using just the best pressure and side shots, to get the opponent to give in. At every stage of the consultation, I focus on being as effective as possible for my clients while keeping an eye on the costs. It does not help if in the end the costs are higher than it brings economic advantage. Sometimes I have the feeling that this important point, in proportion to the size of the law firm, receives all the less attention. This also applies to litigation – I guarantee full cost transparency and maximum cost efficiency.
