In addition to drafting patent applications and assisting our clients in examination proceedings before the European Patent Office and the German Patent and Trademark Office, Marius Fischer also deals with opposition, appeal, and nullity proceedings as well as infringement issues.

He can draw on extensive technical know-how gained during his studies of physics on the one hand; on the other hand, working as a developer at a successful Munich-based start-up during his doctorate, he acquired profound knowledge of patent law. In this capacity, he was responsible for all IP matters, putting his knowledge into practice even before joining BARDEHLE PAGENBERG.

Marius Fischer's technical specializations include electrical engineering, information technology as well as physics in general and telecommunications and semiconductor technology in particular; however, he also works in the fields of sporting goods and medical technology. Given his studies and doctorate, he is also well versed in nanotechnology.
