When it comes to abstract and unusual trade marks such as colours, forms and the like, you've come to the right place. I will equally offer you tailored advice and comprehensive knowledge both inside and outside the courtroom in all other fields of trade mark protection, copyright protection and unfair competition law.I have extensive experience regarding non-traditional trade marks such as colour trade marks, 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.
