Office History

Herbert W. Fritz began working as a freelance patent attorney in Arnsberg in 1959. From that year on the office has been run under the name FRITZ. The office itself had already existed before 1959 when it was run by patent attorney Gockel.

After in 1986 the son joined his father's office and patent attorney Dr. Basfeld and attorney Hoffmann joined in the beginning of the 90ies, the office had an rapid boom. Attorney Hein, the patent attorneys Graefe and Brune completed the team of attorneys. Today four patent attorneys and two attorneys have approximately 20 employees.

In December 2014 FRITZ Patent attorneys and attorneys at law changed their legal form from a Civil Law Company to a Partnership Company with Limited Professional Liability. On 01 September 2015 a new local branch was opened in Iserlohn.
