Stephan Drost - Patentanwalt bei EHF Patentanwaltskanzlei
Dr.-Ing. Stephan Drost Electrical Engineer

For me, being a patent attorney means …
Helping inventors to get the most out of their invention.

Before work …
I go for a bike ride through the forest so I don’t spend the whole day sitting on a chair.

After work …
I do voluntary work because the climate situation, the human rights situation in the world and the Roman Catholic Church are not in a state where you want to hand them over to the children.

I became a patent attorney because …
as a researcher at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, I was involved in a number of inventions myself before joining EHF, and as a group leader I became aware of the value of patents.

I quote a lot from …
the invention disclosure; more precisely, I translate the creative results described in the invention disclosure into patent attorney’s language and I am pleased when the inventor sees his invention well reflected in the patent application and agrees with the claims and the patent application has become a well-rounded whole.
