Stephanie Wilcke, LL.M. (Griffith University Queensland)
Stephanie Wilcke focuses on IP litigation and counselling in both national and international contexts. She has broad experience in dealing with patent, unfair competition and design disputes, the latter often regarding technical designs. In the area of design law, e.g., she was deeply involved in the litigation of an extensive case before the German Federal High Court of Justice resulting in two judgments by the Court dealing with fundamental questions for the area of design law. Further, Stephanie advises on matters of trade mark and copyright law. In both areas she can look back on experience in matters involving extensive litigation, extra-judicial negotiations and advice as to how to deal with the underlying issues from a business perspective.
Stephanie gained her understanding of clients' business in the course of her work for Hogan Lovells and during a six month period spent working in the legal department of an internationally known and renowned corporation based in Dusseldorf. There, she gained insight into the every-day concerns of such a corporation and into how such concerns can be addressed to make the most from a business perspective.
Stephanie has strong ties to Australia. She successfully attended an LL.M. program at Griffith University Queensland in Brisbane and worked in the Sydney branch of a large Australian-based law firm for three months in the context of her practical legal training.
Stephanie is a member of the German Association of Intellectual Property and Copyright Law (GRUR).
