"As a Senior Associate in Taylor Wessing Germany’s Trademark, Advertising and Design practice, I advise clients on all aspects of brand protection and enforcement, design law and unfair competition law. In addition to handling a wide array of prosecution matters before the German Patent and Trademark Office and the EUIPO as well as litigation before the German courts, I have significant experience in managing global trademark and design portfolios. I have worked with clients in a wide range of industries, including fashion, e-commerce, logistics and software. My international experience, including in US legal studies, is a valuable asset in my work with clients from all over the world."
