IP law firm Eisenführ Speiser continues its strategic growth: Dr Michael Schneider (51), attorney-at-law, will be reinforcing the firm’s team in Munich with effect from 1 May 2021.
Dr Schneider’s specialty is representing clients in patent infringement and revocation disputes, primarily in the high-tech and medical products industries, as well as advising on related forensic and contractual matters. He also has many years of experience with standard-essential patents in the fields of mobile communication and automotive engineering. His clients include U.S. and other international firms operating in said industries, which he advises, represents and supports in a coordinating capacity in cross-border disputes.
‘We are very pleased to have attracted Dr Michael Schneider as an experienced patent litigator who will further enhance our effectiveness in patent infringement cases and through whom our litigation team will now also be represented at our Munich office’, commented Dr Julian Eberhardt, managing partner at Eisenführ Speiser. Dr Michael Schneider stated that, ‘The breadth of Eisenführ Speiser’s long-established expertise in the technological fields relevant for my clients, and the opportunity to bring in my own international litigation network into the operations and further expansion of the firm, were key factors behind my move’.
As an attorney-at-law, Dr Schneider has worked exclusively in the IP and patents field since 2000. He is now moving from Pinsent Masons, before which he worked as a partner in the Munich offices of firms with international operations and Networks.
