Dominique Gobert

Partner at Zimmermann & Partner Patentanwälte mbB

Dominique Gobert is a qualified German and European patent attorney. He studied physics in Regensburg and Munich (Germany), Montpellier (France) and Urbana-Champaign (United States) and received a Bavarian scholarship for especially talented students. He has a PhD from the Technical University Aachen in the field of superconducting and magnetic effects in solids and was awarded the Borchers Medal for his thesis.

Mr Gobert has worked in the IP field since 2005. He specialises in the technical fields of process and automation technology, power transmission and materials engineering. Mr Gobert represents large multinationals and helps clients to develop and optimise their patent portfolios (eg, patent prosecution before the German Patent Office and the EPO, portfolio strategy and analysis). He also regularly helps clients to defend and enforce their patents (eg, opposition, nullity and appeal proceedings before the German Patent Office, the EPO and the German Patent Court and support of infringement actions before the German civil courts). Mr Gobert has experience as a court-appointed technical expert in patent litigation proceedings and is a tutor at the EPO European Patent Academy.

For Mr Gobert, the key to successful patent proceedings is a well-founded understanding of not only his client’s technology, but also their business goals and strategy.
