Andreas Lubberger

Partner at Lubberger Lehment

Andreas Lubberger studied law at the University of Frankfurt, staying on for some years as an assistant lecturer and receiving his doctorate summa cum laude on the constitutional protection of property.

After his admission to the Bar in 1989, Dr Lubberger headed the Frankfurt IP team of Oppenhoff, which later merged with Linklaters. In 2004 Dr Lubberger left Linklaters to found Berlin boutique Lubberger Lehment with Cornelis Lehment, handling unfair competition and trademark law. Their goal to become one of the leading trademark practices in Germany was achieved in 2009 when Lubberger Lehment was named IP Firm of the Year by JUVE magazine.

Dr Lubberger is renowned for his academic achievements and boasts a 20-year track record of landmark litigation in trademark law. He has authored many articles and is an active contributor to the publications of professional organisations, being a member of the Amicus Curiae Committee of INTA, a member (and founder) of the Famous and Well-known Marks Team of MARQUES, co-head of the Unfair Competition and Trademark Working Group of the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, member of the Selective Distribution Working Group of the German Trademark Association and head of the Legal Team of Meisterkreis.

In recent years Dr Lubberger has developed a particular focus on trademark exhaustion, selective distribution and online platform liability. He handled the successful Coty case before the Court of Justice of the European Union (C-230/16), a landmark decision for operators of selective distribution systems.
