Since January 1, 2015, DTS is supported by Dr. Christian Wende as a new partner. Before joining DTS Dr. Wende was employed at Prinz & Partner as an Associate, where he was in charge of own clients, inter alia well-known companies in the field of medical technologies and mechanical engineering, and took care of the prosecution and litigation. Previously, Dr. Wende was employed at Lorenz Seidler Gossel and Meissner Bolte in Munich. Dr. Wende also is an assistant professor at the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University in Munich (TU München) since 2011, teaching patent law for engineers.
Robert Schnekenbuehl puts it this way: “We are very happy to find a partner in Christian Wende, who does not only fulfill our client’s high requirements as to the quality of our daily work, but who is also active on the scientific sector.”
