Miriam Kiefer new member of the executive board of women in ip

Our Managing Partner Miriam Kiefer LL.M. is a new member of the board of women in ip. What began in 2011 as a platform for women in intellectual property quickly developed into an international non-profit platform that was registered as a non-profit association in 2014. The aim is to connect women from various areas of intellectual property, such as patent attorneys, lawyers, judges, patent examiners, professors, patent engineers, candidates and members of the opposition and appeal boards of the European Patent Office, in order to promote and strengthen the exchange of experience.

The honorary executive committee is elected for three years and plans and organizes the realization of the association goals, in which the association offers the members a platform for the organization of seminars, both for technical advanced training and personal advancement, as well as for the discussion of vocational and technical questions. In addition to Miriam Kiefer LL.M., Dr Claudia Schwarz, founding partner of Schwarz + Baldus, Dr Andrea Zehetner, owner of Zehetner Patentanwälte, Gabriele Mohsler, head of Ericsson’s patent department in Germany and Pia Björk, senior advisor at the European Patent Academy complete the board.
