Who's Who Legal Patents: Lawyers

Tilman Müller-Stoy, together with Johannes Heselberger, heads the firm’s patent litigation group.

His main areas of practice include providing advice and conducting patent litigation (including entitlement proceedings) in all technical fields, as well as handling cases relating to utility models, trade secrets, unfair competition, and patent-related anti-trust law. He has extensive experience in not only defending against, but also creating, evaluating and enforcing extensive licensing programmes, particularly in the area of SEPs, including FRAND issues. His further areas of practice include IP-related contractual matters, particularly technology transfer/licensing, employee invention law and IP-related mediation and arbitration proceedings.

Tilman Müller-Stoy, having handled several hundreds of adversarial patent disputes in courts and patent offices, has experience in numerous sectors, including the sectors of telecommunications, IT (hardware and software), consumer electronics, medical devices, automotive engineering, sports equipment, machinery and engineering, glass coating, brewing and food processing technology, packaging and abrasive engineering, chemistry, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals, also relating to compulsory license proceedings.

He represents clients in patent infringement suits, and in nullity, opposition and cancellation proceedings before the various infringement courts, the German Federal Patent Court, the German Federal Court of Justice, the European Patent Office, and the German Patent and Trademark Office. He has extensive experience in conducting and coordinating cross-border patent litigation (frequently in relation to the USA, Japan and the core European markets of the UK, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands). His clients are major multinational corporations but also include highly innovative SMEs.

Since 2009, Tilman Müller-Stoy has been working as a visiting lecturer in IP law at the Technical University of Munich and was a docent for trainee lawyers at the Higher Regional Court of Munich for many years. He teaches patent law at the Center for Advanced Study and Research on Intellectual Property (CASRIP) of the University of Washington School of Law and as part of Dresden University of Technology’s LLM programme on international studies in intellectual property law. He regularly gives presentations at German and international IP conferences.

He publishes articles on issues relating to intellectual property law, alongside his work as editor of the EPLAW Patent blog. He is the LESI chair of the external relations committee (and has been actively involved with LESI and LES Germany in various positions for a number of years).

Tilman Müller-Stoy is also a qualified commercial mediator (MuCDR).
