Dr. Fabian Kiendl


German Patent Attorney

European Patent Attorney

UPC Representative


Fabian was already gathering experience in the world of computer networks at a time when this was still frowned upon. In other words, he was a “digital native” long before the term was coined. His expertise is very much in demand in all patenting matters relating to machine learning, security, networks, blockchain as well as software and digitalization in general. He also prepares patent applications from the fields of physical measurement techniques, energy technologies and signal processing, in particular from the field of science, in which he completed his training in intellectual property protection.
