Peter Gross has focused his activities on the development of trade mark strategies, and he is very experienced in the defense and enforcement of intellectual property rights within Germany and abroad.The owners of large trade mark portfolios as well as companies who are at the early stages of setting up their trade mark and IP rights find him to be a competent legal advisor.
Furthermore, he conducts infringement proceedings in patent, trade mark, competition and design law matters. He also has a great deal of experience in the field of sales and distribution of me-too products.
His clients value the fact that he not only focuses on the legal issues, but that he also focuses on developing a clear and practical approach with regard to how legal problems can be settled as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. He never loses sight of the economic consequences of a proposed solution in infringement proceedings, so it is not uncommon that preference is given to a pragmatic approach instead of a lengthy judicial dispute.

In addition, he worked as a research associate from 1998 to 2003 at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces, Munich, at the Institute for Comparative Business Law, Technology Law, and Procurement Law.
