As a partner in our intellectual property team in Munich, I advise and represent our clients in IP law, particularly in life sciences.
While my technical speciality is in organic and pharmaceutical chemistry, I also represent our clients in other fields of chemistry including fibres and inorganics, as well as medical devices such as IV catheters, artificial heart valves and respiratory masks.
I have in-depth experience in European and German patent law, obtaining patents, defending and attacking patents in opposition proceedings before the German and European Patent Office and acting in nullity suits before the German Federal Patent Court and the Federal Supreme Court.
In addition, I am also involved in infringement proceedings together with our litigation team, and have expertise in the coordination of international proceedings across multiple jurisdictions. I also advise our clients on questions of the German employee inventors' law.
