I provide our clients with legal advice on a broad range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters. My focus is on advising and representing clients before all German patent infringement courts in relation to patent disputes across a wide range of industry sectors and technologies, including electronics, mechanics and medical devices, telecommunications and computer software. I have particular experience in co-ordinating multi-jurisdictional patent litigation with legal teams across different jurisdictions. In addition, I advise in other areas of intellectual property law, including know-how protection, unfair competition law, IP-related antitrust issues, licensing agreements, employee inventions as well as transactions of acquisition or transfer of IP-rights. I also spent time in-house seconded to the legal team of a software company, where I got to know the client's perspective and advised the management in an extensive US patent litigation.Before joining our firm, my experience had been strengthened by spending time as a senior researcher at the Transnational Economic Law Research Centre at the University of Halle-Wittenberg, where I wrote and spoke extensively on international law issues, especially on the protection of IP rights.
