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, for example, she was deeply involved in the litigation of an extensive case before the German Federal High Court of Justice, which resulted in two judgements about fundamental questions for this area of law. Further, Stephanie advises on matters of trademark and copyright law. In both areas, she has 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 not only in the course of her work for Hogan Lovells. For six months, she has also worked 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 how those 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 during her practical legal training.
