Peter likes variety which is why he has represented small, medium-sized and large clients in all aspects of chemistry and beyond for more than two decades. His technical areas range from foods to forest products and from polymers to pharmaceuticals. For the most part, Peter handles contentious matters, in particular opposition and appeal cases before the European Patent Office and revocation actions. Peter has been involved in several hundreds of oral proceedings and is convinced that this is a good basis for his activities in patent prosecution and litigation support.Peter Klusmann is a German and European patent Attorney in HOFFMANN EITLE’s chemistry practice group.

Prior to joining HOFFMANN EITLE in 1994, Peter studied chemistry at the RWTH Aachen (1986-1990) and then moved on to attain his Ph.D. degree at the Max-Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung (1991-1993). He is a frequent lecturer in patent matters and fluent in German and English.

Outside the office, Peter likes his slice in tennis, but hates it on the golf course.
