Lukasz Wlodarczyk

Lukasz is an attorney at law before the Court of Paris and a European patent attorney.

Lukasz has practiced patent law since 2003. He started prosecuting patent applications in the French IP department of an international group specializing in electronics. He then moved to a US IP boutique in NYC, before returning to France to work as a French and European patent attorney at the French headquarters of a large European IP firm.

Lukasz joined HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER in 2016 as a patent litigator.

Experienced in patent drafting, he has an excellent command of EPC procedures (examination, opposition…). He spent one month at the EPO board of appeal 3.5.02 in Munich, during which he studied appeal procedures from within DG3.

His involvement in patent infringement suits led him to carry out many French "saisies-contrefaçon" (evidentiary seizures) based on patents (and occasionally on software copyright). He is also involved in patent revocation and non-infringement proceedings in France, as well as other patent related matters, such as employer/employee law regarding employee inventions.

Before entering legal practice, he was an electronics engineer specialized in signal processing and IT security, and is CISSP certified. He developed, inter alia, an OFDM circuit operating in the HF band as well as various cryptographic smartcards. He was tasked with the deployment of a large scale PKI requiring tight coordination of numerous industrial subcontractors.
