Patent Attorney Werner Freischem, founding member of the patent law firm FREISCHEM & PARTNER, passed away on April 19, 2017 after a short and acute illness while surrounded by his closest family.

Werner Freischem started our firm together with his late wife more than 50 years ago and developed it to become a stable player in intellectual property in the Cologne area and beyond. His relentless efforts on behalf of his clients, mostly German medium-sized enterprises, was devoted to implementing successful protection strategies. His work was a solid foundation for our growing national and international IP counselling.

Werner Freischem combined a successful professional attitude with a very open and optimistic personality. He was a highly valued senior partner for all his younger partners and staff members.

We will always treasure his invaluable contributions to the success of the patent law firm FREISCHEM & PARTNER and we are thankful for his long lasting support.
