The integrated cross-border and online enforcement of her clients' IP rights is a special focus of her work. Anthonia's client base spans software and online services, consumer electronics and entertainment, as well as beauty care and automotive. She has extensive experience in global brand enforcement strategy and litigation and advises her clients on all steps of the way: From strategic advice on obtaining and protecting trademarks and other intellectual property rights to their enforcement against imitations, scams, misleading and false advertising and other forms of misuse.

Anthonia regularly publishes on current trademark, online and unfair competition topics, exploring the legal implications of current market realities such as ad-blocking and the effective protection against online scams. She is a member of the Marques "Class 46" team of trademark bloggers and writes for the firm's LimeGreen IP knowledge site and for external legal publications.
