Dr. Christine Kanz

Christine Kanz has worked as an attorney since 1998. Although she has primarily focused on international patent litigation in the areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and chemistry, she has also handled numerous cases in the areas of medical devices, mechanics and consumer products.

Much of her work involves cross-border litigation with the result that she is highly experienced in handling and coordinating such cases.

She started specializing in intellectual property law during her legal internship in 1996. After attending the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition and Tax Law in Munich as an auditing student, she obtained her PhD in trademark law in 2002 at the University of Düsseldorf.

Christine regularly publishes on patent law matters and speaks at conferences on patent law issues. She is also a visiting lecturer at the Hagen Law School.
