Dr. Uwe Albersmeyer
“I like leveraging the different options to protect intellectual property in order to create comprehensive value for the client. It is great motivation when I manage to find a loophole just when it looks like nothing will work.”
Dr. Uwe Albersmeyer was born in Essen, Germany in 1970 and still lives in the city today. He is married with two children. Outside of the office, he likes to play bass guitar in different ensembles. Uwe Albersmeyer speaks both German and English fluently.
