Anders has a M.Sc. in Engineering with heavy focus on Electronics & Mathematics from the Danish Technical University, where he worked with nonlinear dynamic systems and time series entered the patent profession in 2003 in one of Europe’s largest IP-firms.

He has from day one been heavily involved with a major hearing aid and provided legal advice to protect all four cornerstones of smart hearing technology – audiology, connectivity, apps and design.

Anders has a profound understanding of the problematic issue of Computer-implemented inventions (CII) in Europe, and since “software patents” have the highest growth rate among all patent categories presented to the European Patent Office (EPO), his skills are in high demand ranging from largest software/hardware developer to the smallest start-up company with the vision to change the world.

With the explosion of the Internet of things (IoT) Anders has been committed to make an enormous effort in providing “invention harvesting” for clients who traditionally did not use IoT interaction, and filed numerous applications on the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to connect and exchange data.

Anders has extensive experience of prosecuting patent applications before numerous patent offices and frequently represents his clients at hearings before the EPO. His work has been used in successful global patent licensing and litigation discussions, and he also conducts opinion work.

Anders has been a CEIPI (Centre d’Études Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle) tutor since 2008 and continues to lecture prospective European Patent Attorneys in their preparation for the EQE (European qualifying examination), which tests candidates’ knowledge and aptitude to represent applicants in EPO proceedings and is widely regarded as one of the most demanding professional examinations.
