In my spare time I read Shakespeare in a bilingual edition. The refinement of his expression enriches my rhetoric.

Ever since beginning my career as a lawyer, I have worked at rospatt osten pross. My clients are mainly large and medium-sized Asian, US and European companies in the fields of, inter alia, biotechnology, chemistry, computer hardware and software, electronics, manufacturing engineering and machinery, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications.
In patent law, I am mainly involved in litigation in infringement proceedings. Together with patent attorneys, I also appear in the associated opposition, nullity and cancellation proceedings. The cases for which I have been retained have given me some wide-ranging insights into such technical fields as mobile telecommunications (2G, 3G and 4G), wired communications, inorganic and organic chemistry and process engineering, computer technology, analogue and digital audio and video processing, medical engineering, pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering and optics. It is a great help in this connection that I also have a personal interest in technical matters.
In trade mark law, I am already involved at the stage of deciding on and developing marks. I appear before the civil courts and also before the national and international offices.
Other major fields of activity for me are design law and the law of unfair competition, especially in sectors involving technical aspects, such as telecommunications and pharmaceuticals. I also attend to copyright cases in the software and internet fields and anti-trust cases before offices and civil courts, e.g. fighting obstacles to internet trading.
Licence agreements and the remuneration of employee inventions are my most important activities apart from litigation.
During my career as an attorney, I have been involved in numerous cases of interest not only to lawyers, but also to the general public which have been the subject of reports in specialist journals and other media. Furthermore, I am the joint editor and co-author of “Handbuch des Patentrechts”, the “Patent Law Handbook”, 1st edition 2012, Beck-Verlag. I also lecture on patent law issues.
