Barbara Kuchar specialises in intellectual property and unfair
competition, with a strong focus on trademarks and substantial
experience in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious
IP law.
She graduated from the University of Vienna and worked as
a lawyer in Vienna and Budapest, also spending time in Dublin
as a foreign associate with A&L Goodbody Solicitors. She is a
founding partner of Gassauer-Fleissner Rechtsanwälte GmbH.
Ms Kuchar’s recent work includes representing a breast
cancer charity in trademark infringement proceedings in
connection with its pink ribbon sign, and filing and obtaining
a preliminary injunction and house search under the EU
Enforcement Directive for a printer manufacturer in connection
with grey-market products. She also successfully defended
a German software company in an unfair competition case
involving the alleged enticement of employees and customers.
Ongoing matters include court proceedings regarding the
rendering of accounts and profits by the alleged infringer of
a pharmaceuticals patent. The case involves questions as to
the amount of the licence fee if the infringer acted purely as
a contract manufacturer for a foreign parent company where
no patent protection was available.
A particular focus of Ms Kuchar’s work is anti-piracy
protection. She represents famous original manufacturers from
around the world against infringers and has been entrusted
with the defence of some of the world’s most valuable and
prominent brands.
