As a member of the Intellectual Property Practice Group in Düsseldorf, I concentrate on patent litigation, particularly within the automotive and tech sectors.
My responsibilities involve analysing products for potential patent infringements, supporting both our domestic and international clients in navigating their IP rights. My work in patent infringement litigation encompasses detailed fact-finding, handling technical patent details, formulating procedural strategies tailored to the case at hand, and patent enforcement through seizure and preliminary injunctions.
Within the scope of FRAND licensing, I offer guidance to clients on ways to protect their trade secrets, both in court and during out-of-court negotiations. Additionally, I advise our clients on the enforcement of standard-essential patents in national courts as well as the Unified Patent Court (UPC). This includes advice on all issues of licensing negotiations holders of standard-essential patents may encounter before asserting their patents in court proceedings but also alternative dispute resolution through mediation and arbitration.
Prior to joining our team, I gained experience in patent law and especially patent litigation while working as a research assistant at the Stuttgart office of another international business law firm and in competition law as a research assistant at the Chair in Private Law, Commercial Law, Competition and Insurance Law in Tübingen.
