Why am I patent attorney?

“From the very first time I encountered the subject of patent law, the career profile of a patent attorney fascinated me, and this fascination became stronger over the years and quite simply never left me. What challenges and drives me in equal measure is the interface between technology and law, but also the art of transforming a concrete invention into words and drawings. For you as the creator, I am the spokesperson who puts this concrete invention into words and defends its meaning before patent offices and third parties, always on the premise of helping you to achieve your maximum rights. Thanks to the intensive collaboration among our IP specialists, and our proven team spirit, we find a way to drive your aspirations forward, even in the most complex of proceedings.”
