About Me

As an associate in our Inellectual Property Group, I advise domestic and international clients on all matters of Intellectual Property Law with a particular focus on patents, utility models and trade secrets.

I have particular expertise in litigating patents in the fields of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, semiconductors and mechanics. This includes cross-border infringement proceedings as well as parallel validity proceedings (at the Federal Patent Court, the Federal Supreme Court and the EPO). Additionally, I advise on contractual IP matters and on trade secret protection.

Before joining our firm, I was an associate with an international law firm in Frankfurt where I gained valuable experience in IP law. I hold a PhD in patent law and have worked as a research assistant at the University of Osnabrück while completing my PhD studies.
