"Here, we can help to shape future topics that are part of our business strategy."
Whether for the new advertising campaign, the latest update for the vehicle software or the next digital service: Caroline Maier is one of the first to see the innovations from Mercedes-Benz - and immediately subjects them to precise scrutiny. She and her colleagues in the Intellectual Property department at Mercedes-Benz advise the specialist departments on issues relating to competition, media and copyright law. In her interview, the fully qualified lawyer tells us what she particularly loves about her work and how she came to Mercedes-Benz during her legal traineeship.
Since her voluntary social year with the City of Stuttgart, Caroline Maier (31) has been passionate about legal issues. Born in Ludwigsburg, she therefore studied law at the University of Constance and the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. Because she particularly appreciates the diversity of topics in business and industry, she made a conscious decision to pursue a career in the corporate world after her second state examination, and joined the "Intellectual Property" department at Mercedes-Benz in 2019. When she is not advising the departments, Caroline Maier spends a lot of time outdoors, for example on a trip through Norway in a camper van or hiking in the mountains. And for relaxation in between, she enjoys playing the piano - pieces by Beethoven and Mussorgsky are the best way for her to switch off.
