Marco had worked for five years for a small company specialised in laboratory equipment, before joining V.O. in 2000. In this company he was involved in product development, international marketing and project management. This experience helps in staying empathic towards SMEs and their specific challenges, although he also serves the interests of scientific institutes and multinationals.
Marco’s IP expertise lies in the general field of chemical patents, with an emphasis on food technology, process technology and industrial biotechnology. Further, he is particularly interested in the fields where chemistry and other disciplines meet, e.g. medical technology and laboratory technology. The main focus of his work is on drafting patent applications, prosecution in various jurisdictions, European oppositions and – occasionally – litigation.
