I work mainly as a trial attorney in the field of patent and utility model law. Based on a large number of cases of international importance, I have an excellent knowledge of international patent law. I regularly work in integrated teams with patent law experts from various countries. Ever since I began my career, I have not only conducted cases in the technical fields which have traditionally been important in patent law, namely mechanics, electronics and mechanical engineering, but have also been involved in numerous trials in the fields of pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering, chemistry and fine chemicals, digital entertainment electronics and medical engineering. Among my clients are internationally renowned pharmaceuticals and biotechnology companies, consumer goods producers, suppliers for the automotive industry and manufacturers of electronic components, and also SMEs in the plant construction sector and companies in the packaging industry. I have trial experience from appearances before all the main German patent courts and regularly take part in proceedings before the European Patent Office, the German Patent Office and the Federal Patent Court.
Although my work is focused on patent law, I am also involved above all in cases concerning trade mark law, registered design law and the law of unfair competition. Advising on the law of licence agreements also takes up a considerable part of my time.
I speak regularly at national and international events on German patent law.
