He then studied mechanical engineering in the field of aerospace engineering at the Technical University of Munich and graduated in 2003 as a Diplom-Ingenieur (Univ.).
Mr. Frantz joined our firm in 2003. He has been a patent attorney and European trademark and design attorney since 2007, and has been a European Patent Attorney since 2008. In addition to working in our law firm, Mr. Frantz was head of the patent department of a Swiss industrial company for one year. Mr. Frantz has been a partner since 2012.
Markus Frantz considers it essential for his work to develop a deep understanding of the clients needs, particularly with regard to a product to be protected and its technical peculiarities. This serves as a basis, e.g. for the successful conduct of even complex opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office and the German Patent and Trademark Office, for example in the field of precision engineering. Mr. Frantz has particular experience in the field of employee inventor’s law, in which he has reached an out-of-court agreement with the other party in close cooperation with the client. His focus is on being adamant about the interests of the clients he represents, in order to represent them sustainably before offices, courts and third parties.
