Partner at Weickmann & Weickmann PartmbB
Markus Herzog is a patent attorney and partner in the engineering group of Weickmann & Weickmann in Munich.
With over 20 years of experience, Dr Herzog advises his clients in all areas of intellectual property, including patent drafting, filing and prosecution, oppositions (defending and attacking), validity and infringement (opinions and litigation) and freedom-to-operate opinions, among others. He represents worldwide operating companies, as well as small and medium-sized companies and individual inventors in Germany, Europe, the United States and Japan.
Dr Herzog’s areas of expertise include opposition and appeal proceedings before the European Patent Office and national German nullity proceedings before the German Patent Court and the German Federal High Court. In patent infringement proceedings he cooperates with specialised German attorneys at law in representing clients before German civil courts.
The clients’ economic interests are always a central concern for Dr Herzog when advising and developing strategies for his clients. As he is convinced that, in many cases, out-of-court settlements serve clients’ interests better than lengthy and cost-intensive court proceedings, he has worked intensively with alternative dispute resolution and earned a qualification as a business mediator from the Munich Centre for Dispute Resolution.
Dr Herzog is a member of the managing board of the Christiane Herzog Foundation, a non-profit, non-governmental organisation supporting children and adults suffering from cystic fibrosis.
