Stephan Mathé can look back on many years of ex­per­i­ence in the me­dia in­dustry. After study­ing law at the Uni­versity of Ham­burg, he worked as a product man­ager for the games pub­lish­er Ei­dos and over­saw sev­er­al well-known video games. As a train­ee law­yer, he suc­cess­fully worked for lead­ing me­dia law firms, the Fed­er­al Re­view Board for Me­dia Harm­ful to Minors (BPjM) in Bonn and the Ger­man Em­bassy in Canberra (Australia).

After his ad­mis­sion to the bar in 2004, he foun­ded his own me­dia and busi­ness law firm that ad­vised lead­ing games com­pan­ies such as Dis­ney, Sony, Warner and Sega. He was also a lec­turer in me­dia law at the Schwer­in Design School, the European Me­dia and Busi­ness Academy, the Ham­burg Me­dia Academy, the Hoch­schule Freseni­us and the Uni­versity of Mag­de­burg. Law­yer Mathé has been a trained me­di­at­or and Spe­cial­ist Law­yer for In­tel­lec­tu­al Prop­erty Rights since 2009.

In 2015 he joined one of the largest law firms in Schleswig-Hol­stein as a part­ner, where he was re­spons­ible for the me­dia law and in­tel­lec­tu­al prop­erty rights de­part­ments.
