Before joining D Young & Co in 2018, I worked in the IP department of an international general law firm and a German IP boutique law firm. I also worked as an examiner at the EUIPO in Alicante and gained experience of working as an in-house lawyer for an international retail company in Düsseldorf and a leading company from the luxury goods industry in Geneva.
I advise my clients in all contentious and non-contentious aspects of national and international trade mark, design, copyright and unfair competition law. My focus is in particular on the development of global trade mark and design filing strategies, the optimisation of trade mark and design portfolios, the enforcement of trade marks, designs and domains against infringements and dilution by third parties court actions, as well as negotiation and conclusion of IP related agreements.
I represent my clients in proceedings before the German PTO, the Federal German Patent Court, all German civil courts, the EUIPO and the European Courts in Luxembourg.
