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 as well as in conducting and coordinating cross-border patent litigation (frequently in relation to the USA, Japan and the core European markets - UK, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands). His further areas of practice include IP-related contractual matters, particularly technology transfer and licensing, employee invention law and IP-related mediation and arbitration 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 – UK, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands). His clients are major multinational corporations but also include highly innovative SMEs.

Tilman is widely recommended as one of Germany’s leading patent litigators. Recommendations include the 2016 editions of Who’s Who Legal: Patents, Managing IPBest LawyersChambers Europe and Chambers Global. Sources quoted in the guides say, “He is a great presenter in court hearings. He is calm and has a strong fact base.” Clients describe Tilman Müller-Stoy as a “fabulous patent litigator”, adding, “he’s really great. He gets into the technology and argues our case outstandingly in court.” IAM Patent 1000 (2015) describes him as “Supremely persuasive”, adding that he “has a great way of presenting arguments. He is fantastically confident; his ability to quickly grasp the technical details of a case has often been the decisive factor. Working with him is an absolute pleasure.” The Legal 500 EMEA (2016) describes him as a “brilliant strategist” who “keeps his cool, even when it gets emotional in court, and presents complex subject matter in an outstanding manner”. JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms (2015/2016) describes him as a “young lawyer with enormous litigation experience (competitor)”. He has been listed in MIP (IP Star) Germany since 2014. IAM Patent 1000 – 2014 states: “Drawing ‘endorsements from across the world’, Tilman Müller-Stoy ‘is probably the best young lawyer in the patent field’.”
