For over 50 years, GERSTENBERG Rechtsanwälte has stood for specialist expertise in industrial and intellectual property law and pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food law. Our tradition of excellence in litigation is documented by numerous precedential decisions won by our firm for plaintiffs and defendants alike. At present seven experienced practitioners represent our clients throughout the entire breath of civil, criminal and administrative proceedings up to the European Court of Justice.

Our clients not only benefit from our legal experience, but also from our firm's particular scientific know-how. This benefits our clients greatly, for example, through our evaluations and modeling of scientific studies surrounding product development and our defense of their rights when addressing drug advertising and cosmetics and food law.

Additionally, a number of our lawyers possess excellent French language skills in addition to being admitted to practice in France. This enables us to expand our focus further into counseling and representing French clients in the practice areas of the firm.
