Dr. Tobias Hahn

Tobias Hahn, attorney since 2004, partner of the firm since 2011, advises German and international clients in all matters of Intellectual Property and specialises in national and international patent litigation as well as subsequent proceedings for damages. He especially concentrates on the areas of telecommunications, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, automotive and mechanics.

A main focus of his practice is on infringement proceedings on standard-relevant patents where he advises and represents several international telecommunication companies regarding "FRAND" and antitrust defences. He further represents clients in opposition, revocation and nullity proceedings before the German and European Patent Office, the German Patent Court and the Federal Supreme Court. Moreover, he drafts and negotiates patent and copyright licence agreements, R&D contracts, software and know-how agreements.

Since his studies at the Universities of Heidelberg and Leeds (UK) he has specialised in Intellectual Property Law. During his legal clerkship he continued this specialisation working for several international law firms. His PhD obtained from the Free University Berlin dealt with the liability of companies for acts of unfair competition by third parties.

Tobias Hahn publishes regularly on current issues of intellectual property law and is a speaker at conferences on patent law and licencing. Furthermore, he is visiting lecturer at Hagen Law School.
