What to expect from my work

Laser-sharp focus

I don’t do trademarks, designs, litigation, nor do I work in a variety of technical fields. I build patent portfolios for digital innovators only.


I don’t charge for calls, emails or meetings. I want you to ask more questions and share your long-term goals.

Beyond billables

I offer flat fees for work packages or entire projects. This gives you certainty and entices me to get it right the first time.

The problems I solve for my clients

“Bastian, our industry is right in the middle of the digital transformation. Our external patent attorneys do a great job for mechanical cases, but they don’t seem to understand our digital inventions anymore. Can you help us out?”

β€” πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό In-house patent manager

“Bastian, we’re about to close our series A and the investor asks for our IP strategy, and how we make sure our competitors don’t sue us for patent infringement. Can you help us?”

β€” πŸ§” Startup founder

“Bastian, we have this difficult software patent application / appeal case. Can you give us a second opinion?”

β€” πŸ‘©β€βš–οΈ European IP firm

“Bastian, we need a representative to handle our client’s EP portfolio, and we hear you’re one of the best for software-related cases. Can we send you work?”
