Benedikt (Ben) Neuburger holds a diploma of physics, a PhD in economics, a Master in Business Research (MBR) and is a qualified German and European Patent Attorney. Ben mainly works in the field of green technologies, power engineering and deposition technology. He represents clients in examination, opposition, nullity and appeal proceedings before the German and European patent offices and the German Patent Court. Since having his paper singled out to be published by the European Examination Committee in the year of his European Qualification Examination, Ben has been more and more involved in opposition and appeal matters with a strong focus on the legal, in particular procedural, aspects of the proceedings.
Ben studied physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich (LMU), the Università degli studi di Pisa and the University of Innsbruck. In achieving his diploma, he worked in the fields of quantum computation and fault-tolerant implementations in solid states and photonic systems. After graduating, Ben attended the postgraduate studies titled “Business Research” at LMU where he worked on his PhD based on the economic valuation of patents. In his PhD, Ben examines known valuation techniques and presents a new method for an accurate value determination of individual patents or technically related patents which is based on conjoint analysis (“Die Bewertung von Patenten – Theorie, Praxis und der neue Conjoint-Analyse Ansatz”. Cuvillier-Verlag, 2005).
