Caroline: “I am proud to be made a partner with such an inspiring firm. I enjoy the international atmosphere and cross-border work and teams. I look forward to continue to develop my practice and take up the responsibilities that come with the partnership.

Christina Tenbrock joined the firm in Düsseldorf in 2011. She advises and represents national and international clients in various fields of intellectual property law, with a particular focus on trademarks, designs and unfair competition, including product advertising in the life sciences sector. Christina has extensive experience conducting both national and cross-border infringement proceedings and is regularly involved in opposition and invalidity proceedings before the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) as well as EUIPO. Aside from her litigation work, Christina advises clients on marketing campaigns, product launches, border seizure proceedings and various contractual issues. Christina won Lawyer Monthly’s 2018 Women in Law Award for IP.
