Heuking reinforces Patent practice with Patent Attorney Detlef Raasch as Salaried Partner
Dr. Detlef Raasch will join Heuking as Salaried Partner effective January 1, 2023, reinforcing the Patent Law team led by Dr. Anton Horn in Düsseldorf. The addition of the new team member is another sign of the consistently pursued expansion of the Patent Law practice.
Dr. Raasch is a Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney and comes from the law firm of FARAGO Patentanwälte (Munich / Aachen). He holds a PhD in Physics and has particular expertise in the fields of optics, thin film technology, material physics and semiconductors, as well as in medical technology and environmental engineering.
Heuking’s Patent Law team thus expands its technical expertise in patent applications and litigation. Isabella Sommer-Zhang, electrical engineer and European Patent Attorney, had previously joined the team in January 2022 and focuses on software, AI, and blockchain patents. The full press release is available here. In September 2022, Ms. Mila Zhang, also an electrical engineer, joined the team at the Berlin office. She has particular expertise in the fields of power engineering and automation. Two patent paralegals complement the team.
Anton Horn, Partner at Heuking, said, “Detlef Raasch is an experienced patent attorney who will add significant value for our clients. The consistent expansion of our team is also further strengthening our market position.” The Patent team is predominantly based in Düsseldorf and is currently comprised of seven core legal professionals.
