“I started my career in IP as a Trademark Examiner at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property.

Followed by 15 years in multinational companies, dealing with all aspects and IP rights worldwide and in charge of some unique legal trademark cases. I built a rich in-house experience by additionally setting up the corporate IP department of one multinational company and by reforming internal processes in another one.

After 15 years, I set up my own practice for 4 years before joining Katzarov in November 2018. My extensive in-house background, my threefold experience in an IPO, in multinational companies and in a law firm as well as numerous assignments in governance and project management brings to our clients a business and pragmatic approach to their IP issues coupled with an extensive international practice.”
