Our People

Maucher Jenkins has built a team of outstanding professionals, recognised experts in intellectual property law, science and technology, working across multiple industry sectors and legal jurisdictions.

Dr. Patrick Saloga

Trainee Patent Attorney

B.Sc., M.Sc. and Doctorate in Chemistry from Freie Universität Berlin


Patrick joined the Freiburg office of Maucher Jenkins in August 2021, where he is currently working towards qualification as a German and European Patent Attorney.


Patrick graduated with a Master’s degree in chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin in 2017. He then conducted research as a scientific assistant at the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), a German senior scientific and technical Federal institute, and received his doctoral degree in chemistry from Freie Universität in 2020.


Patrick has gained expertise in the synthesis and characterisation of nanomaterials as well as their application in life sciences. His research focused on silver and zinc oxide nanoparticles, their behaviour in an artificial digestion procedure as well as their formation or degradation as induced by biomolecules. He is particularly familiar with microwave-assisted fabrication of inorganic nanostructures and the non-destructive, simultaneous analysis of billions of nanoparticles by light and X-ray scattering methods.


Interests outside work:


In his spare time, Patrick enjoys travelling and taking in local museums and cuisine.
