Hein founded Patentwerk in 1998. The mission then was – and still is – to provide a high level of service in a friendly manner and, in so doing, to put the interests of the client first and foremost.

‘I am proud of the many clients which have and still do put their trust in Patentwerk and of the solid reputation we have been able to build in a few decades.

Patentwerk is now a professional, structured organisation where all employees maintain direct contact with clients.

During my work as patent attorney, I have become acquainted with many interesting people around the world, which has resulted in an international network of experts with whom we often maintain pleasant relationships.’
