Position

Miriam Büttner’s interest in industrial property law was aroused at the very beginning of her legal studies by a lecture by the present Supreme Court judge Prof. Dr. Meier-Beck. She therefore planned her further legal education on that basis, e.g. by means of internships in various in-house legal departments.

Her work as a lawyer concentrated from the very beginning on “green field” issues. Over the years, a focus has come about in the field of developing, pursuing and enforcing trade mark and design rights. Here, she attends to clients in the automotive, sanitary installations, pharmaceuticals and fashion industries. A special emphasis here is on combating product piracy.

In addition, she assists in national and international patent infringement cases from all fields of technology. In co-operation with patent attorneys, in-house patent departments and foreign law firms, she handles proceedings before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office, the Federal Patent Court and the European Patent Office.

Another major focus of her work is advising and representing companies on matters of competition law, which likewise frequently have a complex technical background. In the field of copyright, she provides consultation for clients and represents them especially in enforcing their entitlement to royalties. Here, her work mainly involves negotiating and drafting appropriate licence agreements.
