Dr. Piet Schönherr, MSc (physics)

Patent Attorney, European Trademark Attorney

Piet Schönherr's practice focuses on mechanical engineering, software-based inventions and semiconductor technology. For our clients, he handles patent prosecution proceedings before the relevant patent offices and also advises on trademark law. After studying physics in Berlin and Beijing, Piet Schönherr went to Oxford to first obtain his master's degree and then his doctorate on nanomaterials for electronic applications. In 2017, he started his training at Maikowski & Ninnemann. His enthusiasm for China has remained, and the patent attorney speaks Mandarin fluently. Therefore, Piet Schönherr would like to put Asia at the center of his patent attorney work and connect the two large markets of Europe and China.
