The Team behind the IPDR Forum
The IPDR Forum was founded by the team of Dr. Axel Walz, Prof. Dr. Peter Picht, Dan Bauer, Raffael Probst, Claudia Feller, Dr. Matthias Zigann, Dr. Georg Werner, Dr. Stephan Gruber, Johannes Heselberger, Dr. Gisbert Hohagen and Marco Stief.
Every time Dr. Axel Walz and Dan Bauer met, they always came back to discussing the need of an IPDR Forum. With Raffael Probst an ADR specialist joined and the group decided to create a permanent forum where experts and practioners from both worlds -Intellectual Property and Alternative Dispute Resolution- could share their ideas and experiences. The idea soon got traction and in September 2015 the Munich IP Dispute Resolution Forum was founded.
