Eva Geschke

Partner at Wildanger Kehrwald Graf von Schwerin & Partner mbB

Eva Geschke is a partner at Wildanger Kehrwald Graf von Schwerin & Partner mbB, one of the remaining specialised Dusseldorf boutiques solely focused on IP work. The firm has been and continues to be prominent in shaping the patent litigation landscape in Germany.

With over 15 years’ experience in the IP field, Ms Geschke has handled hundreds of patent cases. This wealth of courtroom experience is reflected in her in-depth understanding of not only case law, but also the characteristics of the different German courts handling patent cases.

Ms Geschke primarily handles patent litigation matters before the various patent litigation courts throughout Germany. She advises a broad selection of national and international clients. She is also widely known for representing a host of German innovative medium-sized businesses. Her work covers a wide range of technical fields, including mechanical and electrical engineering, biotechnology and chemicals.

Ms Geschke regularly handles European Patent Office opposition and nullity proceedings at the Federal Patent Court and the Federal Supreme Court.

She is one of the original co-authors (up to the second edition) of the leading patent law handbook: The Enforcement of Patents in Practice. She regularly speaks at seminars and teaches specialised courses on IP law.

The latest JUVE German Commercial Law Firms Handbook lists Ms Geschke (once again) as one of the top 14 leading partners in patent litigation (aged 50 or under). She is also recommended in the Legal 500 (2018) ; the Legal 500 Europe (2012) (“a patent litigator par excellence”); Legal Experts EMEA (2012); JUVE German Commercial Law Firms (2008-2009) (“technically very experienced, impressive legal mind”); and JUVE German Commercial Law Firms 2007/2008 (“a good position in Dusseldorf courts”).

Ms Geschke is a member of all major IP associations, including the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, the European Patent Lawyers Association, the Association of Intellectual Property Experts, the Intellectual Property Owners Association and the American Intellectual Property Law Association.
