At Zimmermann & Partner, Henning is active in the field of mechanical engineering and mechatronics, e.g. drivetrain and engine technology, automotive, energy engineering, power electronics, aerodynamics, instrumentation and control engineering.

While studying at the Technical University (TU) of Berlin, he was already busy with intellectual property as a trainee in the patent department of a highly innovative SME. In a collaboration of said company with the Institute for Construction and Design Methodology at the TU Berlin – in context with his thesis –, he analyzed solution finding processes of different design and invention methods (conventional design methods, TIPS) by applying such methods to a specific technical problem, systematically integrating IP considerations.

Following his degree, Henning was working in a patent department in the automotive industry. Becoming Head of Intellectual Property in a world-wide operating company in the field of renewable energy, he established and entrenched invention and patent management processes in the IP department he built up. Due to his experience, Henning knows the situation and demands of clients from industry particularly well. He is therefore able to provide services of Zimmermann & Partner tailored to the specific needs of our clients.
