Name: Jasmin Mykhaylova

Position at GSKH: Apprentice IP Paralegal

When and how did I come up with the idea of becoming a IP Paralegal?

After graduating my A-levels, I was looking for something challenging and varied. At the time, my friend’s sister was a trained patent paralegal and was able to tell me a lot about the apprenticeship and the work process, which also matched my interests.

What was the most catching moment/adventure/happening, … in your career so far?

When I saw the two big Law books (Habersack) on my desk on the first day of my apprenticeship.

What does GSKH represent for you?

At the beginning I was afraid, because it was my first time in the “working world” but I was warmly welcomed into a young and very competent team, which is always ready to answer all my questions.

Position at GSKH: Team-assistant / Reception Munich Office

When and how did I come up with the idea of working for an IP office?

Years ago, I can’t really remember, but its my second company and I am happy to be here. Also, the job interview with Mr. Hirschhausen was one of the reasons, why I am here now because it was unique.

What was the most catching moment/adventure/happening, … in your career so far?

All the events like museum visits, trips, Oktoberfest and the last Christmas party we celebrated and visit together are catching moments. We are making good memories as a team together and we laugh a lot.

GSKH represents for me a good working place with a good team and atmosphere as well as a wonderful team spirit. If you come to work you come happy and not in a bad mood, so that’s important because it’s a place where you want to work.

Successfully planning a business trip/conference on my own for the first time. It was a lot of work and I was proud when I was done.

Name: Julia Schreiber

Position at GSKH: IP Apprentice

When and how did I come up with the idea of becoming a IP Paralegal?

During my training as an educator, I realized that I prefer working in an office. That’s why I only worked in my job for a short time and then searched for a position in an office. It was there that I came across GSKH by chance and that’s how everything took its course.

What was the most catching moment/adventure/happening, … in your career so far?

The last Christmas party was a great event for me. The good atmosphere, the great food and the fact that we simply laughed, talked and sang a lot together made this the greatest moment for me so far.

What does GSKH represent for you?

You can feel a good team spirit here. I noticed that in my first few days here and it’s the most important thing for me to know that I can rely on my colleagues and they can rely on me.

Name: Alexander Müller

Position at GSKH: Patent Attorney, Associate

When and how did I come up with the idea of becoming a Patent attorney?

After completing my studies in physics and econo-physics, I was looking for a position that would combine my physical-technical expertise with my knowledge of technology and innovation management in industries.

I became aware of this career field through a patent attorney friend of my father. When it became clear that dealing with language would also play an important role in this job, the decision was made for me, since I already enjoyed writing texts at school.

After an internship at an industrial company, I was finally ready to start the training.

What was the most catching moment/adventure/happening, … in your career so far?

During my training at the Federal Patent Court, a hearing was held on whether a patent in the field of vacuum cleaners was null and void, i.e. whether its protection would expire. This trial was part of an extensive worldwide dispute. Both parties had the vacuum cleaner models in question with them for inspection, and they came up trumps with their expert knowledge.

While deliberating during the break in the proceedings, the chairwoman joked quite dryly:

“The male attorneys here are acting as if they know everything there is to know about vacuum cleaners. But presumably none of them has ever used a vacuum cleaner himself at home!”

This incident showed me that even the highest German patent judges are still having fun doing their job.

What does GSKH represent for you?

On the one hand, large enough to be able to represent major global companies in all areas of intellectual property.

On the other hand, still small enough to be able to maintain a comfy working atmosphere in which one does not feel like a replaceable wheel in the gear.
