Memberships: LES PTMG INTA GRUR (German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property) FirmProfile In 1962, lawyers Dr. Wilhelm Heil and Dr. Gerhard Reble joined forces to practice law. The law firm experienced continuous growth during the following decades as additional partners and employees joined the firm. In 1997, the law firm merged with the patent law firm Klose & Schmitt, and in 2001 it merged with the patent law firm Fischer. Today, we specialise in providing consulting services in the field of commercial law and industrial property law. It was the firm’s focus on commercial law that lead it to merge with the patent law firm Klose & Schmitt on 1 January 1997, a move which also created the law firm Reble & Klose as it exists today. In 2001, we further expanded our specialist services in the field of trademarks and patents by acquiring the patent law firm of patent attorney and graduate engineer WolfDieter Fischer.
