About Miriam Kiefer LL.M.

Miriam Kiefer is a founding member of Kather Augenstein and has been Managing Partner since the beginning of 2019. She has litigated over one hundred infringement cases over the last 15 years, mainly based on patents and utility models. Most of these litigations are of a cross-border nature and the coordination of multinational disputes is therefore a matter of course for her.

Miriam Kiefer is now recommended and named by numerous publications such as IP STARS, IAM Patent 1000, JUVE Patent and Best Lawyers. The Legal 500 Germany quotes a reference that Miriam Kiefer is an “excellent lawyer who can be highly recommended in technical-legal complex patent proceedings.” She os listed as Patent Star 2021 & 2022 and one of the Top 250 women in IP / Managing IP (2021 & 2022).

Miriam Kiefer is co-author of two commentaries on patent law and the UPC. She also regularly lectures on patent law issues (most recently in the context of an online seminar series of the EU Commission on the topic of SEP enforcement) and is involved in the training of patent attorneys with the working group in North Rhine Westphalia. Miriam Kiefer has collaborated with the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) on the 2018 study on “Joint liability of IP infringement”. She is a member of GRUR, VPP, AIPPI and EPLAW.

Last but not least: She is engaged in supporting female professionals in their career and was appointed in June 2019 Member of the Board of women in ip e.V., a non-profit organization for the encouragement and communication of women who are active in the field of intellectual property.

One of her passions lies in the field of MedTech. Although her focus is on the enforcement of technical IP rights, she also represents her domestic and foreign clients in design and trademark infringement proceedings as well as in unfair competition proceedings.
