I am a patent attorney in our Intellectual Property practice group in Munich, where I work as a senior associate, focusing on inorganic, organic and pharmaceutical chemistry.

I have a long experience in drafting patent application and correspondence with Patent Offices and foreign colleagues. Over the past years I have also gathered deep knowlegde in infringement and revocation actions before the European Patent Office, German Patent Office and German Courts. My practice also includes the management of IP portfolios and the preparation of FTO analysis.

The technical focus of my work is on fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals (e.g. sildenafil, adalimumab, trastuzumab and pertuzumab) and process technologies (e.g. catalytic production of acetic acid).
