Professor Rademacher’s research focuses on the protection of technical innovation by means of patents and other rights. He is the first foreigner appointed as a tenured law professor at the Waseda University Faculty of Law, and is a regular speaker at IP law conferences in Asia, Europe, and the US. His publications include the treatise Patent Enforcement in the US, Germany, and Japan (Oxford University Press, 2015) as a co-author, the interdisciplinary volume Japanese Design Law and Practice (Wolters Kluwer, 2021, as a co-editor with Professor Aso), and the Research Handbook on Information Law and Governance (Edward Elgar, 2022 as a co-editor with Professor Sandeen and Professor Ohly). Professor Rademacher is the recipient of a Waseda University Research Award for High-Impact Publications and has advised the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry on several policy and legislative projects throughout the last decade.

Professor Rademacher is admitted as an attorney-at-law in New York and as a solicitor in the Republic of Ireland. Before joining the Waseda faculty, he practiced intellectual property law with Baker & McKenzie’s Tokyo and Munich offices and was an assistant professor at the Waseda Institute for Advanced Study.

A native of Germany, he obtained his first degree in business and law, as well as his doctorate in law, from the University of Siegen, Germany, and an LLM in Law, Science & Technology from Stanford Law School.
