Wolfgang Grosse was born in Kiel. He was educated as an officer in the German Federal Navy before studying mechanical engineering at Braunschweig Technical University. Here, he focused on automotive engineering, internal combustion engines, tooling and materials science. He graduated in 1969. During his engineering studies, he holds a position as an assistant at the Institute of Automotive Engineering.

During his training as a patent attorney, he also studied law at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, and attended seminars at the Max Planck Institute of Industrial Property and Copyright Law, likewise in Munich. After being admitted to the German Bar of German Patent Attorneys, he set up his own patent law firm in Munich in 1972. The primary focus was on consulting services to foreign clients in Europe, the USA and Japan. As a consultant, he gathered a wealth of knowledge in textile and casting technologies, process engineering, household appliances, as well as construction and civil engineering.

Wolfgang Grosse is an experienced speaker at seminars, especially in Asia, and is a member of national and international patent and industrial associations (GRUR, CIPA, FICPI, AIPPI, LES, the German-Japanese Jurists' Association, and the US and Australian Chambers of Commerce).

In 1978 he founded a partnership with physicist K. Kirschner, and in 1987 the partnership merged with the patent law firm of Bahr Betzler Herrmann-Trentepohl & Bockhorni. 2003 witnessed a further merger, this time with the partnership of Palgen, Schumacher & Partner, thus creating Grosse, Bockhorni & Schumacher, now continuing its tradition as GROSSE • SCHUMACHER • KNAUER • von HIRSCHHAUSEN as it is today.

Wolfgang Grosse joined the office as Partner until December 2011.
