Mewburn Ellis bolsters Munich office

Mewburn Ellis has hired trademark attorney Dydra Donath as partner in its Munich office.

Donath joins the firm from Winter, Brandl, Fürniss, Kaiser, Polte, where she worked for 20 years.

Her practice focuses on trademarks in a variety of industries, including the medical technology, pharmaceuticals, automobiles and fashion.

Mewburn Ellis opened its first Europe office in Munich late last year. The firm has offices in London, Bristol, Cambridge and Manchester.

The office is located near the European Patent Office and offers a full range of IP services in patents, trademarks and designs.

Commenting on her new position, Donath said: "[Mewburn Ellis] is undergoing a period of impressive growth, not only in Munich, but across its entire range of IP services."

She added: "I very much look forward to helping drive that growth still further, not least in relation to the firm’s EU Intellectual Property Office work, for which it has an excellent reputation”.

Tanis Keirstead, partner at Mewburn Ellis and leader of the Munich office, commented: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Dydra Donath to Mewburn Ellis.”

“Her formidable experience will be invaluable as we cement our reputation as the preeminent European IP firm. 2017 saw Mewburn Ellis not only celebrate its 150th anniversary, but also open its new Munich office. As we begin 2018, our prospects for further growth mean we could not be more excited about what the future holds”.
