Practice groupIntellectual Property

Alexander Wiese deals with all aspects of intellectual property rights, with a special focus on technical IP rights (patents and utility models). Alexander primarily advises on patent litigation and gained experience in the fields of electronic engineering, programming and mobile as well as stationary information technology. Additionally, his knowledge and experience cover the protection of trade secrets, IP licensing and trademark law both on a contentious and non-contentious basis. Alexander not only advises German clients, but also clients from all over Europe as well as Asia and North America. 

Alexander frequently participates in various pro bono activities. He is, inter alia, a mentor for the "Debate It!" project of Tech First Germany for the second time and was a regional judge for several Moot Courts in Dusseldorf and Freiburg (Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court, ELSA Negotiation Competition, ELSA Criminal Law Moot Court). These activities correspond with his ability to think outside the box and to view a problem from different perspectives.

During his studies, Alexander spent more than three years working as a research assistant at the Chair of Intellectual Property at the University of Freiburg. Alexander finished his PhD thesis in patent law in 2015 whilst working for an international law firm in Dusseldorf with a focus on trademark and licensing law. During his legal clerkship, he worked for the German Opera in Dusseldorf, where he advised primarily on copyright law, as well as for Hogan Lovells' IPMT team in Dusseldorf and London.
