Christian advises clients on issues of trade mark and unfair competition law.

A focus of his practice is on cross-border litigation, often related to questions of consumer perception and unconventional marks (e.g. for the shape and colour of goods). He handles a few global brand portfolios and frequently acts before the GPTO and German Federal Patent Court as well as the EUIPO and Court of Justice of the EU. His most recent cases include C-832/21 Beverage City, T-175/22 BREZTRI and T 591/22 Polaroid.

Christian regularly deals with IP rights in the context of blockchain technology and the Metaverse. He also speaks often on general IP topics, for instance for the lecture on IP Law at the Munich Business School.
