Ulrich Krüner has a soft spot for all soft IP matters, with a particular focus on trademark law. As an associate of our IPMT Group, Ulrich advises on the enforcement of IP rights, including complex disputes covering several jurisdictions. He also advises on non-contentious matters, ranging from trademark strategy and prosecution through drafting coexistence and settlement agreements to finding creative solutions that allow avoiding litigation in the first place. Naturally curious, Ulrich has accumulated a wide understanding of what is going on in the telecommunications market as well as in the food and beverage industry during his work in these sectors. Ulrich studied law at the University of Münster and at Charles University in Prague.
During his legal traineeship, he has been spending half a year in Portuguese-speaking countries, working for the German-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in Lisbon, Portugal, and one of the leading IP law firms in Brazil.
