A chemist dedicated to truly understanding technology and turning it into IP solutions

Takaaki Ikuno works in the broad field of chemistry, especially in chemical processes, catalysis, surface chemistry, materials chemistry and polymers. He has gained technical understandings in such fields during his studies and research works in chemical engineering and technical chemistry. Takaaki is dedicated to bringing his technical knowledge and understandings into play for understanding clients’ needs in protecting and managing intellectual property and finding the best solution tailored to European practice. He specialises in prosecution and opposition before the EPO, as well as providing legal opinions.

Having a Japanese background and experiences in Europe, an international environment is where Takaaki belongs to. He advises clients from industry and academia from all over the world – including Japan, Korea, China, the United States and Europe.

Before joining HOFFMANN EITLE, Takaaki studied chemical engineering at the University of Tokyo, with a particular focus in materials chemistry. During his Master’s study, he stayed at the Technical University of Munich for one year to further develop his scientific knowledge and skills. After having completed his Master’s study in Japan, he moved back to Munich, to carry on research on heterogeneous catalysis. His research works have resulted in multiple scientific publications.

On weekends, he enjoys riding a bike and exploring roads that lead to beautiful places with a lot of nature.
