Lars Schoenwald

Lars Schoenwald specialises in all areas of soft intellectual property (IP) such as trademark, design, copyright, and unfair competition law as well as e-commerce, online, privacy, and general commercial law.

Lars studied law at the University of Passau and the University of Western Australia in Perth. Having lived and worked for a substantial time in Perth (Australia), Marseille (France) and Brussels (Belgium), Lars does not only speak English and French fluently, but also has a strong international mindset. Consequently, he focused his studies on public international law, European Union law, conflict of laws, international dispute settlement and comparison of laws. In addition, Lars is pursuing a doctoral degree from the University of Passau with his thesis focusing on the nexus of international economic law, European Union law and African law.

Before joining Gowling WLG, Lars worked for the IP dispute team of a US law firm. His colleagues appreciate his quick comprehension of very complex legal issues, client orientation, analytical and research skills as well as his ability to provide clients with feasible solutions for concrete problems by well-structured thinking.

Experience

  • Enforcement and protection of intellectual property rights for international and national clients
  • Legal assessment of the implications of a so-called Hard Brexit on medical devices.
  • Comprehensive legal assessment of the compliance of Member States with particular provisions of European Union law.

Apparently, @AndiScheuer is preparing a #lawsuit against #Austria, re driving bans & block dispatch in #Tyrol, claiming it is discriminatory. But it addresses Austrians as well - thus not discriminatory! Ban might be justified for environmental reasons (c.f. Cassis de Dijon). Lars Schoenwald (@larsschoenwald) Jun 24,2019
