Valentina Niess, Counsel, Noerr (Germany)

I have 10+ years experience advising on all questions of trademark, design, unfair competition and domain law. This includes advice on building and defending trademark and design portfolios as well as litigating IP and unfair competition law infringements, i.a. in preliminary injunction proceedings. This in particular for clients in the pharmaceutical and consumer goods industry. I am a member of INTA’s Enforcement Committee, an editor of INTA’s Trade Dress publication, regularly publish articles on IP issues and have taught unfair competition law as well as trademark and design law at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich. I am admitted to both the German and the New York Bar and am a member of the IP Law Section of the ABA.
