About Me

I have been with our firm since the opening of its first German office in Düsseldorf in 2002. I have 20 years' history of litigating patents on both sides of the "v."

My special area of expertise is the organisation and implementation of international patent infringement litigation. I handle patent cases before all German Courts as well as at the European Patent Office and have run several of the largest patent cases in Germany, particularly in the pharma and telecommunications sectors.

You will find me listed in numerous reputable legal directories such as The Legal500, Chambers, JUVE, Best Lawyers and Who's Who Legal. Over the years my work has also been recognised by specialist IP publications such as Managing Intellectual Property and IAM Patent.
