As an associate in our Düsseldorf IP team, I counsel clients on industrial intellectual property rights focusing on patents, utility models, and unfair competition, as well as on the intersection with antitrust law.

I work on infringements of IP rights and gather evidence in preparation for litigation.

I specialise in patent law and work with international clients to defend their IP rights and in related litigation before German Civil Courts. My cases include questions with regard to standard-essential patents (SEP) or their implementation.

Before joining our firm, I worked for an international law firm in Düsseldorf where I acquired valuable experience in patent law, mainly connected to FRAND cases. As a law clerk, I also worked for a leading international technology venture protecting their IP rights. Being strongly interested in industrial intellectual property rights, I was motivated to take the LL.M. at the Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago-Kent College of Law) in Chicago, allowing me to advise on an international level.
