Until 2020, Hans Wilhelm von Rohr was partner of the firm von Rohr that was co-founded by him.

Hans Wilhelm von Rohr has been working as a patent attorney for well over 30 years, during which time he has actively witnessed technological developments and the globalization of markets. He has had an active part in shaping the profession of patent attorneys as it is known nowadays. The firm’s namesake sees more in a patent attorney than an expert with technological competence and pure know-how in patent law. A patent attorney brings together the interests of all parties involved and creates in-depth understanding of interrelations of companies, which are often rather complex.

“Intellectual property, in particular patents and utility models, is becoming the key to success amongst global competition in the 21st century. At a time when each company has access to markets, locations and the best brains, IP-protected products, materials and processes are valuable unique selling points.”
