My main areas of practice
My particular focus lies in the judicial enforcement of claims against infringers, as well as in the committed and passionate defence against unjustified claims by property right owners. I can draw on many years of experience, in particular in proceedings for interim legal protection and proceedings on the merits before the ordinary courts in Germany, and have successfully conducted numerous proceedings before national and international register authorities (DPMA, EUIPO, WIPO) and their instances, such as the Boards of Appeal, the European Court of Justice or the Federal Patent Court.

In addition, I coordinate complex cross-border disputes in order to enforce my clients' rights internationally just as effectively and efficiently as in their home market or to defend them against attacks.

I advise my clients in German and English.

The German ranking JUVE has listed me for years as a recommended lawyer in the category "Trade Mark and Design Law / Competition Law" and Legal 500 has honoured me as "Name of the Next Generation" in the field of Trade Mark Law.

I have also been honoured internationally with the Client Choice Award and WTR1000 has ranked me among the World's Leading Trademark Professionals in the Silver Tier for years.

In addition to my dissertation, which deals with innovative forms of trademarks such as sound and colour marks, I have published various articles and contributions on issues of Trademark and Competition Law in recent years, some of which focus on civil procedural issues.

My background
I studied in Leipzig, Berlin and Aberystwyth (Wales).

Before joining Fieldfisher, I worked in major international law firms and most recently for several years as a Partner in a medium-sized German IP firm, where I also headed the Practice Group.
