Dr. Marie Sophie Arendt focuses on the complex and diverse issues of intellectual property law. She is particularly enthusiastic about the areas of research and development, copyright and trademark law as well as media and personality rights. Conscientiousness and attention to detail paired with a corrective gut feeling are the benchmarks of her legal approach.
Dr. Marie Sophie Arendt was born in Magdeburg, obtained her doctorate in Halle and arrived in Dresden. At Battke Grünberg, she impresses with her expertise in trademark and competition law.
After her state examination, four years as a research assistant at the Gundling Professorship* at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, a dissertation with a focus on trademark and competition law and an additional master’s degree in business law, her legal focus is on intellectual property law as well as copyright and media law.
* The namesake of the professorship, Nicolaus Hieronymus Gundling (1671-1729), is considered one of the co-founders of the doctrine of intellectual property.
Always on the ball. Dr. Marie Sophie Arendt keeps several balls in the air at the same time: in addition to her job and family, she finds her balance in volleyball and squash. The best way to recharge her batteries is in the great outdoors on family outings and while hiking in the region. If she has time, Dr. Marie Sophie Arendt likes to swap her file for a thrilling crime novel by Sebastian Fitzek after work.
