UK Chartered Trade Mark Attorney
European Trade Mark Attorney
I have extensive experience advising businesses on global IP strategy and protection and specialise in trade mark and design prosecution, exploitation, enforcement and portfolio management on a national and international level.
After qualifying in Germany, I worked as a Rechtsanwalt in a specialist firm of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys in Munich before moving to the UK in 2004. Prior to joining Forresters at the beginning of 2016, I worked for a global IP consultancy and a firm of solicitors specialising in sports and entertainment law in London. I have acted for some of the leading consumer brands including luxury goods companies, beverage manufacturers and event organisers. My work experience includes spending time on secondment to an in-house trade marks department of a multi-national drinks company.
I read law at the University in Dresden and hold a Masters of Law in International Business Legal Studies from the University of Exeter.
