She was registered as a professional representative before the European Patent Office in 2003 and passed the Austrian patent attorney examination in 2005.

During her training as a patent attorney, she was involved in the prosecution of a wide range of intellectual property rights, which enabled her to gain early experience with the specific peculiarities and requirements of various intellectual property matters, which she now uses to the advantage of her clients, as well as her good language skills in French. As a specialist in trademark matters, she also knows how to achieve the best possible result for her clients in all trademark-related matters.

Her activities in the field of patents and utility models focus on the areas of inorganic chemistry, process engineering, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. She is also particularly interested in obtaining and defending supplementary protection certificates. Among the IP rights she has handled over the years are those in fields as diverse as iron and steel production, biofuel production, biocatalysis, and food technology.

Her precise and careful approach and her preoccupation with the respective background subject matter not only enable her to better understand the interrelationships of the subject matter she is working on, but also to beneficially elaborate the technical and legal aspects.

Since 2011, Eva-Maria Bachinger-Fuchs has been an lay judge for patent matters at the Vienna Higher Regional Court, where she plays a significant role in the relevant case law.

Due to her interest in trademark matters and the knowledge in the field of trademark law she has acquired over the years by assisting clients with large trademark portfolios, she has also been a member of the senate responsible for trademark matters at the Vienna Higher Regional Court since the reorganization of the court system in 2014.
