Attorney at Law (Brasil)
Areas of Expertise
Civil Law and Litigation
Vivien graduated at Law in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2005 and worked as an attorney for 6 years until she obtained the Master´s Degree in Civil Law from the Catholic University of Sao Paulo. During these years, Vivien focused on Civil Law and Litigation, where she started to have contact with IP.
However, Vivien always wanted to discover new worlds and when the opportunity came, she moved to Munich with her husband. There she found her passion for IP, managing large Trademarks portfolios for big companies and having a close contact with the clients. As Team Leader of the Trademarks Client Relations Department of a big IP service provider and managing such portfolios together with their integration with recordal projects required her to go deeper into her project management knowledge. In 2014 Vivien obtained the Project Management Certificate from the British Association for Project Management (APM).
Again, came the possibility to move to France, which Vivien describes as living in Rennes, Brittany for two years as one of the best experiences she had so far. Focusing on client relationships and business development for an office based in and covering Latin America allowed her to improve her French and adopt, even for a period, a lovely French way of life full of good food, wine, friends and beautiful landscapes.
After two years Vivien got back to Germany where she is now settled with her husband and two sons. She joined BALDER to keep practicing what she likes most: working with people.
I like meeting and getting to know people to understand what they need, to help them to solve their problems. That is why I went to Law School in the first place. I do my best to assist my clients in finding tools that will help them on their daily work.
