Intellectual property Law

Intellectual property (IP) is a fields all of its own. Our IP attorneys are experienced in all aspects of this special field of law, including patents, branding, trade names, models, copyright, domain names and licences. Our field of work also includes entertainment law, advertising law and general competition law (including slavish imitation, knowhow protection, prohibited competition and illegal publications).

We are happy to serve as your expert consultants and attorneys in these fields. Offering advice and guidance in entering into contracts (licences, sale and transfer of intellectual property rights) and litigation are our cornerstones.

Our litigation experience is thorough. We litigate before all competent courts in the Netherlands (including the Supreme Court), the Court of Justice of the EU and before the Benelux Court of Justice.

Our practice is both national and international and we can call upon an extensive and far-reaching international network of specialists in the field of intellectual property, so we can also offer you a full international range of services.
This international orientation is underlined by membership of various specialist associations such as INTA, ECTA, Marques, AIPPI and EPLAW. In the Netherlands, too, our attorneys are affiliated to similar associations including VIE and the Vereniging voor Auteursrecht.
