Dr. Wallinger is involved in high profile patent litigation since 1983, including hundreds of patent infringement, patent nullity and patent opposition cases, as well as IP arbitration. A considerable number of these cases were finally decided by the German Federal Supreme Court and are still regarded as landmark decisions. These decisions include, inter alia: “Diving Computer” on the patentability of software programs, “Radio Controlled Clock I, II” on international jurisdiction, “Torque Transmission Device” and “Time Telegram”, which are landmark decisions on claim amendments during prosecution, “Chain Wheel Assembly” and “Multi Speed Hub”, setting the legal precedent in regard to the interpretation of patent claims as well as the most recent decision “Orange Book Standard”on the interrelation of patents and standards.

In these cases, Dr. Wallinger has represented blue chip corporations, in particular in the automotive industry, but also midsize technology-savvy companies. The technology in these cases encompasses mechanic devices,in particular for the car and bicycle industry, electronic products like CDs, CD-Rs, DVDs and DVD-Rs and computer controlled devices such as automatic gear drives, air conditioning system, measurement devices and the like.
