About Me.
Alexander joined the professionals of Grund IP Group in 2014 as a patent attorney candidate, and is continuing to gain valuable experience in the drafting and prosecution (and defense) of European, German and PCT patent, trademark and design applications, in addition to preparing documents for both opposition proceedings and appeal hearings before the European Patent Office. Alexander frequently works with innovations derived from the technical fields of biochemistry, gene editing technologies, immunology, cellular biology, virology, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemical methods and diagnostics, pharmaceutical sciences and related medical devices in the mechanical arts.

Before legal ambitions were on the horizon, Alexander had the opportunity to work at several prestigious research institutions, including undertaking his undergraduate and postgraduate studies in the Department of Chemistry at the Technical University Munich (Germany), the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (Klosterneuburg, Austria), and at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry (Martinsried, Germany). Alexander completed his doctorate work at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (Munich Germany), where his dissertation efforts focused on the role of branched actin networks in dendritic cell physiology.
