Dr. Björn Bahlmann
(in memoriam)

Attorney at Law (Germany)
Certified IP Lawyer

It is with great sadness that we inform you that our partner Dr. Björn Bahlmann passed away much too early.

With Dr. Bahlmann we lose a highly valued partner, colleague and conversation partner. Dr. Bahlmann was an outstanding lawyer and advocate. But for us he was above all a humorous, accessible, loyal, helpful, interested and intelligent friend. It pains us deeply that he is no longer with us. The gap that Dr. Bahlmann leaves behind is large, and it is difficult for us to imagine going into the future without him.

We will cherish Dr. Bahlmann’s memory.
