“As a patent attorney I can use my natural curiosity and propensity to details. I particularly appreciate the possibility to work in different technical fields and being able to learn something every day. It is fulfilling to see a difficult case resulting in a grant of a patent, and the client being happy. My aim is to make my client’s life as easy as possible in patent matters. Training new patent attorneys and following the changes of the European Patent Convention nicely add to the variety of my work.”
