Matthias Waters is a patent attorney at COHAUSZ & FLORACK and advises national and international companies and start-ups in the IT and mobile phone communications in all areas of intellectual property rights.

A particular focus lies in advising and representing his clients in patent application proceedings in complex technology areas and the international coordination of such proceedings.
