K&L Gates Welcomes Intellectual Property Disputes Team in Frankfurt

3 June 2024

Frankfurt – Global law firm K&L Gates LLP welcomes Daniel Marschollek to the firm’s Intellectual Property practice area as a partner. Marschollek joins K&L Gates’ Frankfurt office from Norton Rose Fulbright, where he was a partner for the last ten years. Counsel Manuel Merling and a team of paralegals will follow Marschollek to the firm from Norton Rose Fulbright. The team’s arrival supports the European IP practice and further enhances the firm’s capabilities in the luxury goods and fashion area.

Marschollek focuses on complex trademark, design, copyright, antitrust and competition disputes and enforcement issues, as well as on trademark and industrial design prosecution and IP-related issues of cartel law. He regularly represents blue-chip companies in the fashion and luxury goods industry. He also advises clients operating across the sports, telecommunications, automotive, and pharmaceutical sectors.

"With Daniel, Manuel, and team, we are gaining a very experienced group of IP disputes lawyers who can provide clients with integrated cross-border advice," says Dr. Rüdiger von Hülst, managing partner of K&L Gates’ German offices. "We are delighted that Daniel and his team will help take our Intellectual Property practice to the next level, specifically, enabling us to advise fashion and luxury goods clients on a wider range of legal issues that they face in Europe."

In addition to Marschollek and his team, the firm has welcomed several IP lawyers in the past year, including Charlotte partners Vincent Galluzzo, David Easwaran and a six-person, multi-office patent team, Los Angeles partner Ryan Keech, and Washington, D.C., counsel Shu Chen. As its IP practice continues to grow, K&L Gates remains the only globally financially integrated law firm able to offer clients IP services across four continents.

“Daniel and his team’s arrival demonstrates the firm’s steadfast commitment to serving our clients’ most pressing contentious IP needs, in particular, those that arise in the highly specialized areas of trademark, antitrust, and competition law,” said Bob Barrett, a leader of K&L Gates’ Intellectual Property practice area. “We are excited to welcome the team to the firm – their combined experience enhances our ability to support our clients’ diverse intellectual property needs in Europe and beyond.”

With significant experience and presence in the United States, Australia, and Europe, K&L Gates’ IP practice boasts more than 250 lawyers and professionals – including more than 125 registered patent lawyers, agents, and technology specialists with technical or advanced science degrees, nearly 30 with doctorates – who devote their practices to helping clients establish, enforce, and leverage their intellectual property rights worldwide.
