WEICKMANN wins award at the Managing IP EMEA Awards 2024

For the contribution in a cross-border litigation concerning Bayer’s patent EP 2 305 255, our partner Hans Weickmann attended the Managing IP EMEA Awards 2024 ceremony yesterday evening in London to receive the award for the „Impact Case of the Year“. In Germany, the patent has been successfully defended before the German Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof), despite a revocation by the German Federal Patent Court (Bundespatentgericht) in the first instance. The case has been reviewed by the portal JUVE Patent here: Bayer and Weickmann successfully defend Nexavar patent in the second instance – JUVE Patent (juve-patent.com). This success was built on a perfect team formed by Bayer inhouse counsels, Simmons & Simmons and WEICKMANN.
