Thomas Maier - Patentanwalt und Partner bei EHF Patentanwaltskanzlei
Dr. rer. nat. Thomas Maier Physicist

For me, being a patent attorney means …
to have the great opportunity to assist my clients in legal aspects on their exciting way from a good idea towards commercial benefit.

When clients choose EHF, they …
have found a competent and reliable partner for all IP issues.

After work …
I love to spend my time by the water or in the mountains.

When I was younger I wanted to be …
a professional soccer player.

An invention I’m still waiting for is …
the frameless tennis racket with full-area sweet spot. I’d buy it right away.
