Perfect phrasing, intonation, melody – I played the piano ambitiously. Today I compose … court briefs.

I work principally in the fields of patent law, trade mark and registered design law. I appear for German and foreign companies in infringement trials, in proceedings before the Federal Patent Court, the EPO and the German Patent and Trade Mark Office, in proceedings for the recovery of patent proprietors’ rights and complex cases of claims for damages.
I have technical experience in the fields of, inter alia, engine technology, mechanical engineering and motor vehicle construction, medical engineering, process engineering, aspects of plastics processing and steel treatment, digital and optical data carriers and reading devices, electronic elements, food and industrial packaging.
A further focus of my work is combating product piracy. I advise and represent world-famous luxury labels and small and medium-size companies in enforcing their trade mark and design rights, regularly also in co-operation with customs and police authorities.
In my book “Die einstweilige Verfügung zum Schutze des geistigen Eigentums im grenzüberschreitenden Verkehr” (“The provisional injunction for the protection of intellectual property in cross-border transactions”, Carl Heymanns Verlag, 2003), for which I was awarded the Schiesser AG and Allweiler AG Prize, I already dealt inter alia with questions concerning international jurisdiction, German, English and Dutch procedural law and the harmonisation of law in Europe.
I am also happy to provide my clients with comprehensive advice in Italian.
