The focus of his work as an attorney is on technical intellectual property rights. In patent and utility model law, he advises and appears for large and medium-sized US, Asian and European companies in infringement and nullity proceedings in such fields as pharmaceuticals, medical engineering, chemicals, automotive engineering, electrical engineering and computer technology. A further focus of his work is on combating product piracy. He enforces trade mark and design rights for world-famous luxury labels, especially at international trade fairs, by means of temporary legal protection and injunctions and in cooperation with the customs authorities. He is also involved in conducting litigation in competition law. He represents clients in the battle against unfair imitations of their products and against barriers to online trading. For his thesis at the end of his undergraduate course in Physics, he used a scanning tunnelling microscope to investigate the behaviour of nanostructures when deposited on crystalline surfaces. In his dissertation, he conducted research at the interface between technology and law. The dissertation was published by Mohr Siebeck with the title “Patents on Nanotechnological inventions” and was awarded the Faculty Prize of the Law Faculty at Leibniz University in Hanover. He has a particular personal interest in questions relating to mathematics and information technology and occasionally does some programming. As a student, he held a scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation, Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes.
