Ute Stork

Dipl.-Chem., Patent Attorney

Partner in the firm since 1998. As a German and European patent attorney, Ute Stork mainly represents clients in the European and global market – ranging from individual inventors to multinational companies. She has decades of experience in the field of patents, trademarks and designs and advises on the entire spectrum of industrial property rights.

As a graduate chemist, Ute Stork is particularly fascinated by the opportunity to combine her curiosity for natural sciences and technology with legal issues, argumentative strength and her linguistic talent. One focus of her work is on technical IP rights, during prosecution as well as in the enforcement of rights or defence against attacks by third parties.

Alongside this, Ute Stork dealt intensively with trademark law at an early stage and published an article in this sector – among others – on the retail service mark. For one client, she was able to successfully obtain one of the first trademarks in the field of colour trademarks. As a member of the International Trademark Association, she is also recognised and networked worldwide throughout this field.

Through her distinctive personal network and her long-standing trusting co-operation with partner firms in all relevant countries and markets, she offers her clients from Germany and abroad comprehensive advice in intellectual property rights in Germany, Europe and the whole world.

Main focus in the sectors:

Chemistry (adhesives, mineral oil, building materials)

Paper and packaging technology

Process engineering

Food and luxury goods production


Environmental technology

Energy technology


Ute Stork is fluent in German and English and speaks French.


Ute Stork studied at the Technical University of Braunschweig, where she graduated with a degree in chemistry, and the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. After her studies, she worked in product development and quality control at Worlée-Chemie GmbH. She joined the firm (formerly Wenzel & Kalkoff) in 1994 and has been a partner since 1998.


In her private life, Ute enjoys spending time with her husband and their four sons. In addition to her family life, she devotes herself in particular to her passion for singing in a choir. Through her enjoyment of linguistic-sports competitions, she became German orthographic and spelling champion.
