In the martial arts, I have learned how important it is to judge your opponent properly and to make judicious use of your own strengths.

I advise and represent German and foreign clients in all fields of industrial property rights and competition law.

The focus of my work is on patent infringement proceedings. I appear before all German patent litigation courts. In addition, I am involved in proceedings before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office, the Federal Patent Court and the European Patent Office in cooperation with patent attorneys and company patent departments. I have gained particular technical experience through my work for companies in the fields of telecommunications, mechanics, electronics, medical technology and mechanical engineering.

I regularly work in teams with patent law specialists from different countries. I am particularly familiar with competition and anti-trust law restrictions in the enforcement of standard essential patents.

In addition to patent and utility model law I represent clients in the fields of trade mark, copy-right and domain law and in the law of unfair competition. Out of court, my work includes developing trademark strategies and drafting licence agreements and trade mark delimitation agreements.
