A dynamic litigator and balanced negotiator

Clemens Tobias Steins, attorney-at-law, is a partner in HOFFMANN EITLE’s patent litigation and licensing practice group.

After working first in technology law and M&A, Tobias has specialized in patent litigation for 15 years. He represents predominantly Japanese and US clients in large‑scale patent litigation projects, mainly in the fields of pharma/biotech and electronics. He is an experienced coordinator and known to develop a thorough understanding also of the technical aspects of a case. He is recommended as a patent litigator in the legal trade magazine Juve.

In addition to counseling clients in non-contentious patent law matters, Tobias also enjoys drafting and negotiating license and R&D agreements.

Tobias is fluent in English and, upon working in a law firm in Tokyo for some years, has a basic proficiency in Japanese.

To decompress Tobias competes in ballroom dancing (Latin and Standard Dances).
