My technical background is in Measurement Technology. I started working with patents as an examiner at the European Patent Office in 2003 in the field of Measuring and Optics and I have been working as a patent attorney since 2011 with various technologies such as Telecommunications, Optics, ICT and Mechanics. Given my background on both sides of the patent landscape, I am an expert in both ensuring valid protection for inventions as well as attacking invalid IPR.

What I love the best in the work of a Patent Attorney is the versatility. You get to protect great innovations starting from discussions with the inventors, drafting a patent application and seeing the patent being granted, often after having to fight for the client. On the other hand, it is very satisfying to successfully defend the client against competitor IPR.

I am competitive by nature and do enjoy a good argument, so opposition and litigation are close to my heart. The clients interests become my own as I get immersed in the cases.
