Position detail Partner Assistant (M/F/D)

We at KATHER AUGENSTEIN are animal lovers, not at least because of Nora. Since the puppy age, the female Miniature Schnauzer has supported us in enforcement and defence of patents, designs and trademarks for start-ups as well as for large exchange-listed companies. One of her main fields of activity is the heartly welcome of our guests from domestic and foreign countries. Colleagues and clients alike appreciate Nora’s open, well-balanced nature. Although fun and games are her priority, she is always conscious of her duties. As the herding dog of the law, she regularly roams the offices to keep an eye on matters – and the next caress.
