Partner & Rechtsanwältin Jana Bogatz joins Munich team

Jana Bogatz, partner and German qualified lawyer, joins D Young & Co’s Munich office.

Leading European intellectual property firm, D Young & Co LLP, has today announced the appointment of Jana Bogatz as a partner at the firm’s Munich office. Jana advises on both the contentious and non-contentious aspects of national and international trade mark, design, copyright and unfair competition law.

Her recruitment represents another significant step in the development of our presence in Germany following on from the recruitment in 2017 of Uli Foerstl and Dr Hanns-Juergen Grosse both partners in the firm’s Munich office.

Neil Nachshen, D Young & Co Chair, comments:

We’re delighted that Jana will be joining our growing team in Germany; we know Jana well having worked alongside her on various matters in the past and we’re convinced that she will be an extremely valuable member of our team. Whilst it was always our intention to develop a strong strategic offering in Germany we have also had in mind the potential impact of Brexit on some areas of our business and Jana’s arrival allows us to continue to offer the one stop shop for trade mark, design and patent advice for which we have always had a stellar reputation.
