Yvonne Schäfer
Certified Expert for IP Law
What was your most complex case?
The transposition of the European General Data Protection Regulation in a large international bank has been my most complex matter to date. It was of particular interest that the advice took place at a time when key legal issues had not yet been finally discussed by jurisdiction nor by associations.

Yvonne Schäfer advises national and international companies in the area of intellectual property law. She reviews advertising materials (print, digital, TV) and advises in developing portfolios of protective rights. She also assists her clients in the enforcement of intellectual property claims and disputes with competitors.

Another focus of Yvonne Schäfer lies in the area of IT law, especially focusing on digital business and online platforms. She advises online-shops and financial services firms on the drafting and negotiating of contracts and gives advice i.a. in the area of distance-selling, protecting reputation, social media and data-protection issues.
