Dieter's focus is on intellectual property related litigation. His experience covers a variety of subject matters, including complex patent disputes, trademark infringement proceedings and litigation over copyrighted work of all kinds (audio-visual productions, tv-formats, original fashion and other designs, publications etc.). He also assists clients in proceedings on other, related subjects: unfair competition, freedom of speech, contractual disputes, etc. His transactional expertise includes drafting and negotiating a wide range of license and other collaboration agreements, and assisting companies with the intellectual property aspects of corporate transactions (IP due diligence).

In addition to traditional IP work, Dieter advises clients who operate in a creative and innovative environment (in particular in media & entertainment and life sciences) on other legal issues affecting their business. Such advice includes informing clients of the impact of the regulatory framework in which they operate, clearing proposed advertising campaigns, weighing privacy and personality rights against freedom of speech, safeguarding the protection of confidential know how, etc.

Dieter studied law at the University of Ghent and subsequently obtained an LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law at the George Washington University in Washington DC (LL.M.). He authored various contributions to legal journals, and is often called upon by newspapers and radio stations to comment on intellectual property related news items. He is recommended by legal directory LEGAL 500.
