IP Ones to Watch 2023: MIP recognises Marko Stübegger at RHI Magnesita
Marko Stübegger is a legal IP management expert at RHI Magnesita in Austria
Marko Stübegger has represented refractory products company RHI Magnesita in several matters before the EPO since joining in August 2021 and regularly writes patent applications for the business’s inventions.
A colleague praises him for proving himself numerous times to be a true expert in patents and trademarks and for always being well-prepared and acting professionally.
Before joining RHI Magnesita in 2021, Stübegger worked as a patent attorney at Pinter & Weiss for six years.
Stübegger notes that the main goal of his work is not only about getting a patent granted but satisfying the company’s diverse stakeholders.
He argues that a patent isn’t successful unless it really meets the company’s needs.
“The real worth of a patent can only be seen once it has survived an opposition and when the business is satisfied with its value,” he says.
