Lawyer

I have been a lawyer since 2014. Prior to my Düsseldorf based law firm, I worked for several years as a freelancer and employed attorney for law firms specializing in intellectual property and copyright law.

Specialist Lawyer for intellectual property rights

Because of my theoretical and practical experience, the Düsseldorf Bar Association has granted me permission to call myself a „Specialist Lawyer for Intellectual Property Law“. To ensure that this remains that way, I regularly attend training courses.

I register trademarks and designs for you at national and international offices. If you want to know whether "your" trademark is still available, I will be happy to check it for you.
