EIP bolsters its Düsseldorf office

German intellectual property firm EIP has appointed Christof Höhne as IP litigation partner and head of its Düsseldorf office.

Höhne will start his new role at the beginning of October and will work alongside partner Michael Munsch, who joined EIP in 2015.

Prior to joining EIP, Höhne was an associate at Taylor Wessing, where he was partner.

Gary Moss, head of EIP, said: “We are delighted to welcome Christof Höhne to our team.”

“His experience and expertise will help drive forward the development of our practice in Düsseldorf, strengthen our patent litigation offering, and allow us to continue to develop and sustain solid relationships with clients in Germany and internationally.”

Höhne commented: “I am delighted to be joining the EIP team at this time.”

“Over the past few years I have watched EIP establish itself as a major player in the patent litigation field, and become a ‘go to’ firm, particularly in the field of electronics and telecommunications.”

He added: “I am very looking forward to working with Michael Munsch and the rest of the team to continue to build on that reputation in Germany.”
