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.
