Angelika Langöhrig has been an honorary judge at the patent attorney division of the Munich Regional Court for many years and has now been appointed to the corresponding senate of the Higher Regional Court in Munich. The patent attorney cases panels deal with questions of professional law, which are defined by the professional code of conduct of German patent attorneys. Honorary commitment, such as that of Angelika Langöhrig, has a long tradition in the DREISS law firm. Partners of the firm are and have been involved, among other things, in the field of training patent attorney assistants and patent attorney candidates as well as in the field of the Chamber of Patent Attorneys and in technical committees of relevant professional associations. Our firm sees these important activities not only as cultivating the profession of patent attorney per se, but we also use them to maintain a strong network with domestic and foreign colleagues in the interest of our clients.
