As Counsel in our Intellectual Property team in Düsseldorf, I represent our clients in complex trademark and design disputes consisting of a vast number of parallel proceedings in different countries. My focus is on the interplay of infringement and validity proceedings.I have extensive experience regarding non-traditional trademarks such as colour trademarks, 3D forms and position marks. From that I have gained particular knowledge in conducting and using surveys in infringement and application proceedings. Apart from litigation, I can also offer my experience in a broad range of IP-related contracts, from negotiating licensing agreements to conducting international arbitration connected to complex multi-party delimitation agreements.Finally, I also advise on questions of brand use and strategy at the interface between the offline world and the online world ('fluid marks'). Here I make sure that you do not vary the distinctive elements and risk losing brand protection in the event of a 'facelift' or a dynamic use of your brand on the internet.During my legal training, I worked at the Federal Network Agency, at an international law firm in Düsseldorf and at a medium-sized law firm in Cologne, across all fields of IP and copyright law. I publish regularly on a range of issues in industrial property protection.
