Friedemann has been active in the field of intellectual property for over 20 years, in which he has translated, checked and prosecuted thousands of patent applications. He started his career as an electrical engineer and in-house translator for a Japanese patent law firm. Friedemann is the founder of Horn & Uchida Patent Translations Ltd., a translation house located in Osaka that specializes in the translation of patent applications between Japanese and English, and a founding partner of Horn Kleimann Waitzhofer Patent Attorneys, a patent law firm based in Munich.
