Volkmar Henke

Partner at Eisenführ Speiser

Volkmar Henke is a litigator with outstanding professional experience in patent infringement cases and in patent licensing negotiations, especially in the fields of telecoms, semiconductors and circuit design, electrical engineering, image processing and audio coding. Apart from his professional legal experience and his legal doctorate, Mr Henke also has a full scientific background from his studies at Hamburg University and the University of Paris-Sud (Orsay), and holds a master’s in physics. This unusual double qualification allows Mr Henke to be particularly involved in both the legal and the technical aspects of cases. He is therefore used to working with clients’ technical experts and technically skilled patent attorneys.

Mr Henke provides legal advice in complex patent litigation cases to major multinational groups, innovative medium-sized companies and patent pool administrators. He not only continuously represents his clients before the German patent litigation chambers, in particular Mannheim and Dusseldorf, and nullity senates of the Federal Patent Court and the Federal Court of Justice, but he also coordinates substantial international cross-border campaigns in multiple jurisdictions. During recent years, he was one of the busiest German attorneys in the field of standard-essential patent litigation.

Mr Henke regularly publishes articles and has authored a textbook on co-owned inventions.
