Armin Reindl studied chemistry at the Friedrich-Alexander-University in Erlangen-Nuremberg, specialising in particular in physical chemistry and surface science. After receiving his diploma in chemistry, in 2005, Dr. Reindl completed his doctoral degree under Leibniz laureate Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Peukert at the Institute of Particle Technology, in close cooperation with Evonik AG. As a scholarship holder in the post-graduate programme “Disperse Systems for Electronic Applications”, Dr. Reindl supplemented his grasp of the fundamentals of natural science with expertise in engineering science, specifically in process engineering, materials science and technical chemistry.

Dr. Reindl has been active in the field of intellectual property rights since 2008 and joined our firm in 2010. He was admitted to practice as a German patent attorney, European trademark and design attorney, and European patent attorney in 2012.

Dr. Reindl advises and represents both medium-sized enterprises and international corporations in all matters before the European Patent Office, the German Patent and Trademark Office, the German Patent Court, the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization. Moreover, Dr. Reindl conducts comprehensive freedom-to-operate and patent landscape analyses in order to minimize the risk of infringement suits for the client and to strengthen the client’s own patent portfolio with regard to competition. Due to his broad interdisciplinary education, Dr. Reindl is able to develop tailored solutions to interdisciplinary issues in our clients’ many different fields of operation.
