Jérôme Kommer is a Senior Associate in Quinn Emanuel’s Mannheim office. Jérôme’s expertise as a German qualified attorney (Rechtsanwalt) covers all aspects of complex patent litigation, including the coordination of international litigation efforts. He represents the firm’s clients both in infringement and invalidity proceedings across a range of technologies, including telecommunications, IT, automotive engineering and medical products. He has tried cases before the German patent infringement courts at trial and appellate level, in opposition proceedings at the EPO and in nullity actions before the German Patent Court and the Federal Supreme Court, involving, for example, UMTS network access technologies, speech coding, software interface architectures, and radiation therapy devices. Jérôme has extensive experience in disputes involving FRAND licensing and standards, as well as the patentability of software.
