Rolf is partner of IP boutique law firm Freischem. The firm is managing about 4500 trademarks and 6500 patents and patent applications for mostly domestic medium sized clients in Germany.
His personal background is chemistry and nanotechnology. Before becoming a patent attorney, he received his Ph.D. from the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering as well as the Chemistry Department, both at the State University of New York at Albany. Also, he worked for a small nanotechnology startup that was spun out of the Bayer group.
The focus of his practice is the prosecution of trademarks and patents. With the team at Freischem, he strives to be the external IP department for many medium sized companies.
Rolf is also volunteering his time in the worldwide volunteer organization Junior Chamber International (JCI), where he recently served as executive congress director for the 2014 JCI World Congress in Germany.
