Detailed profile

After studying mechanical engineering and specializing in design, Johannes Simons completed his training at COHAUSZ & FLORACK in 1994 with accreditation as a patent attorney and professional representative before the European Patent Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). He has been a partner since 1995.

Johannes Simons mainly represents large and medium-sized German and foreign enterprises – each a market leader in their field – in all areas of intellectual property law. His primary focus is in developing, maintaining and enforcing large property rights portfolios both at home and abroad. A further focus of his activities is support in implementing measures individually tailored to specific client wishes, which permits the systematic identification, management and exploitation of intellectual property in the clients’ companies. This involves extensive consultancy work in the field of employee invention law.

Together with Gottfried Schüll, Johannes Simons was founder and managing director of CF Profile GmbH & Co KG, which provides intellectual property rights monitoring services for COHAUSZ & FLORACK clients. In addition, he is an initiator and, with Ulrike Ulrich, chairperson of the sponsoring organization CFKinder e.V., which operates a day care center for COHAUSZ & FLORACK employees.
