Patent Attorneys

The practice of Dr. Christian Haupt concentrates on both utility patent and utility model prosecution before the German and European patent offices as well as defending and attacking patents and utility models in opposition proceedings before the competent patent offices, in particular in the fields of mechanical engineering (e.g. sports equipment), telecommunications (e.g. LTE mobile standards and mobile terminals), IT and computer-implemented inventions, electrical engineering and navigation technology.

Another focus is the enforcement of IP rights in patent infringement and (parallel) nullity proceedings before the Federal Patent Court as well as infringement and validity opinions.

Currently, Dr. Christian Haupt, as member of a team of attorneys-at-law and patent attorneys, is involved in a series of patent infringement proceedings, on behalf of a large US software company, in the field of mobile terminals, in particular cell phones and tablet computers.
