Since 2019 Michael Kittelberger has been entrusted with drafting of patent applications, attending patent grant and opposition proceedings as well as with conducting prior art searches.

His technical focus is on mechanical and electrical engineering, in particular braking systems, automotive engineering and electromobility, battery systems, sensor devices, as well as mechanical and/or electrical systems and machines.


Michael Kittelberger studied Nanoscience at the Eberhard-Karls-University of Tübingen. This interdisciplinary course of study covers a broad range of scientific and technical disciplines from the fields of physics, biology and chemistry.

His main focus was in the field of biophysics. He completed his master’s thesis in an interdisciplinary project funded by the Volkswagen Foundation to study quantum mechanical effects in living organisms. His responsibilities included the design and development of an experimental setup, in particular the construction of highly complex optical measuring instruments. After completing his studies, he also worked as a research assistant at the University of Tübingen, where he was involved in research into the mechanical properties of intracellular processes, in particular with the aid of high-precision measuring systems, such as optical tweezers, for single-molecule experiments.

In 2019, he decided to train as a patent attorney. Since then, he has been undergoing training in the field of intellectual property protection in our firm while in addition completing a law degree at the University of Hagen.
