Why am I patent attorney?

“The job profile of the patent attorney unites both the scientific-technical and legal understanding in a unique manner. I find it fascinating to work at the interface of these two areas of expertise, to get in contact with the most recent inventions and to contribute to their maximal protection by the application of smart patent strategies. ”
