My way of working involves focusing on personal contact with you, the client, and thinking out of the box to provide you with customized solutions that help you to achieve your intellectual property objectives.
After having completed my PhD, I spent several years in the R&D department of Océ-Technologies B.V., where I worked on developing inks for use in various inkjet printer applications. At Océ, I gained experience in the complex interplay between different business-related factors, such as developing new applications, protecting technical innovations and ensuring that product launches are timed effectively. So, I can safely say that, besides having expertise in chemistry, process technology and protecting intellectual property, I also know the business world from the inside. I enjoy using this expertise and experience to help you protect your own knowledge and inventions effectively, as well as ensuring you can continue working freely and without too many obstacles on what most likely really matters to you: marketing your products and processes.
Over the years, my work has included drafting patent applications, defending patent applications in various jurisdictions, being on patent litigation teams, preparing opposition proceedings, advising on patent infringement and freedom to operate, and drafting non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).
