Maximilian Weiss is a German and European Patent Attorney trainee, and a trainee to become a European Trademark and Design Attorney. He has been working in intellectual property law since 2016.
His technical background includes studies in physics at the Technische Universität München (TUM), the Universidad de Antioquia (UdeA) in Medellin, Columbia, and a completed apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic. Maximilian Weiss obtained a Bachelor and Master's degree from the Technische Universität München in physics with a focus on theoretical physics and nuclear physics, particle physics and astrophysics. His master thesis dealt with the detection of elementary particles using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in the Antarctic (South Pole).
Mr Weiss was able to gain practical experience in the industry and in science by working for MAN Truck & Bus AG in the field of commercial vehicles during and after his apprenticeship. During his studies, he was involved in the development and implementation of new manufacturing methods for turbine components for civil and military aviation at MTU Aero Engines AG.
In intellectual property law, he works, among other things, in the technical fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, applied physics, optics, computer and communications engineering and telecommunication.
In addition to prosecuting property rights for individual inventors, small and medium-sized enterprises and large firms before the German and European Patent Office, Maximilian Weiss supports us in representing clients in opposition and nullity proceedings before the German and European Patent Office, the Federal Patent Court and the European Boards of Appeal.
