Ulf Grundmann brings with him a practice focused on the pharmaceutical and food industries. His experience as a litigation head has seen him handle both patent and trademark disputes in courts across Germany.

Before joining Mayer Brown, Grundmann was a partner at Gaedertz Rechtsanwalte, where he was responsible for building the firm’s pharma desk.
