Matthias Siebels advises on all aspects of intellectual property rights with a special focus on patent law and patent litigation. He primarily focuses on technical IP rights (patents and utility models), in particular in the fields of telecommunication, medical devices, mechanics as well as chemicals.

The focus of his work is on national and multi-jurisdictional patent infringement litigation and parallel validity proceedings. Additionally, his knowledge and experience cover IP licensing and questions relating to standard-essential patents.

Before joining Hogan Lovells as an associate in October 2015, Matthias studied law at the university of Münster with a particular focus on intellectual property rights, telecommunication and media law.
