… I’m a European patent attorney specializing in software patents.
After graduating in computer science at the Technical University Munich, I quickly realized my talent for explaining difficult technical stuff to the man on the street (and less for coming up with technical innovations myself). So it was only logical to become a patent attorney.
Today, ten years later I work as a partner in one of the most renowned IP firms in Europe.
Besides practicing patent law and representing cutting-edge software and ICT pioneers, I enjoy speaking about all things patents and emerging technologies at IP conferences around the world. Lately, my special interest is in artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, cryptography, the Internet of Things, the patentability issues involved in these technologies, and how they will change the legal industry. If you see me, just say hi and let’s chat over coffee.
If you need assistance with your software patents in Europe and want to hire me, the best way to reach me is by email.
Also, sometimes I feel like writing my thoughts into the interwebs which you can find in chronological order below. Sharing and comments appreciated!
