Stolmár & Partner is pleased to announce that the firm has been named as one of Europe’s leading patent law firms in a report published today by the Financial Times. This is the second time for Munich based Stolmár & Partner to be featured among the top IP firms in Europe.
The Financial Times Europe’s Leading Patent Law Firms 2021 report is compiled by the Financial Times in cooperation with Statista.

Leading IP experts from all over Europe have teamed up to draft a White Paper warning governments of the dangers of waiving IP rights for Covid vaccines. Dr Matthias Stolmár is among them: "The proposition by the US government is a poor response to the current issues that will not only be unable to solve the underlying problem, but instead harm pharma research for years to come".
