Detailed profile

Philipe Walter studied electrical engineering, specializing in communication technology, at RWTH Aachen University and graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. in 1999. During his studies he was primarily concerned with topics in mobile communications and his diploma thesis was supported by one of Germany’s leading mobile network operators. He graduated as a German patent attorney and representative before the European Patent Office in 2002 after his training in intellectual property law at COHAUSZ & FLORACK and continued on to obtain a Masters degree in European Intellectual Property Law. He joined COHAUSZ & FLORACK as a patent attorney in 2003 and has been a partner since 2007.

Philipe represents national and international clients in all matters related to intellectual property law. His clients range from international utility companies and automotive suppliers to high tech start-ups. Besides taking care of every aspect of the intellectual property portfolios of medium-sized German companies, Philipe’s legal activities also involve providing counsel in patent infringement, opposition and nullity proceedings. In this role he was active in various contentious matters between smart phone manufacturers as well as in legal disputes between automotive suppliers or Set-Top-Box manufacturers. Yet another focus of Philipe’s activities is dealing with patent law issues concerning technical standards in Blu-Ray technology and video encoding in connection with international licensing pools.

Philipe speaks German and English.
