Anne Schmitt focuses on the field of intellectual property law. Here, she mainly advises and represents clients in trademark, unfair competition and copyright law – both in court as well as in out-of-court disputes. In particular, she advises leading companies in the area of cosmetics and consumer goods as well as the automotive sector. One focus of her work is the international enforcement and defence of her clients' rights, in particular in the area of product imitations and combating infringements on the internet. 

Anne also provides strategic trademark advice and drafts licensing agreements. This is particularly the case during and after transactions, which she accompanies with a view to IP/IT and data protection compliance.

Anne is a lecturer at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences with a focus on issues of IP contract drafting. Before joining our firm, Anne studied law at the University of Freiburg, Germany. During her legal traineeship (Rechtsreferendariat) at the Regional Court of Mainz, she was already a member of our Intellectual Property, Media & Technology (IPMT) practice group in our Frankfurt office.
