Joachim Mader


Joachim Mader's main areas of practice include the prosecution of patents, invalidity proceedings and infringement proceedings in the various technical fields of mechanical engineering and processing technology. His core technical areas include float glass and fabricated glass products, robotics, automotive technology, process control, and hydraulics. His work particularly focusses on opposition and appeal proceedings before the European Patent Office.

He cooperates closely with the firm’s attorneys-at-law in (parallel) nullity and infringement proceedings before the Regional Courts, the German Federal Court of Justice and the German Federal Patent Court, which enables him to provide practice-oriented advice relating to filing patents at the EPO and the German Patent and Trademark Office.

His clients include one of the world's largest manufacturers of float glass and fabricated glass products, a German world leader in the field of industrial robots and a major Japanese heavy industry company.
