Harald von Herget


I have been a lawyer since 1995 and worked for the prestigious Munich business law firm Bub & Partner in my first year of practice. Since then, residential property law has been one of my professional fields. In 1997 I moved to TLG Treuhand Liegenschaftsgesellschaft GmbH in Potsdam. Property law as well as contract management became my profession. Due to the internet boom, the demand for my legal services in domain name law increased. The latter developed into my special field and led to my specialisation in intellectual property law. I studied law at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich and obtained a doctorate in law at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. I successfully passed both my state examinations in Munich. I gained theory and practice in teaching by teaching students of communication sciences and business start-ups as well as in the training of legal trainees. I continued my education in marketing management, certified (2013) and project management. Finally, I continuously train as a specialist lawyer in intellectual property law. I publish regularly and refer to selected publications. I am a member of the panel of the Czech Arbitration Court for UDRP and in Prague, the GRUR German Association for the Protection of Industrial Property and Copyright, Bonn, the INTA International Trademark Association, New York, the Anwälte für Aufklärung e.V., Berlin and the German-Swiss Lawyers Association, Bonn. Furthermore, I am honorary chairman of the Hausner Foundation, Munich.
