Maren Wilke has been an attorney with HARTE-BAVENDAMM Rechtsanwälte since 2019. She advises national and international clients on all legal issues relating to intellectual property law, in particular trademark, labelling and competition law. Her focus lies on strategic advice and litigation, but also in the out-of-court enforcement of intellectual property rights and competition law claims as well as on the effective defence against infringement claims.
She particularly represents clients in judicial disputes before German and European courts. She also advises clients on the development and expansion of their trademark portfolios, including the registration and introduction of new trademarks as well as their protection against infringements and attacks by third parties. Maren also conducts registration, opposition and cancellation proceedings before the German Patent and Trademark Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
Maren studied law at the Bucerius Law School in Hamburg and at the York University in Toronto. She completed her legal clerkship at the Higher Regional Court in Hamburg, including stations at the Hamburg Regional Court in the chamber for copyright law, at two major international law firms in the departments for intellectual property and in the legal department of a public broadcasting company. She was admitted to the bar in 2016. Thereafter, she also obtained an LL.M. from the University of Edinburgh in Intellectual Property Law. She is a doctoral student at the Bucerius Law School in Hamburg writing a thesis on civil procedure law.
