Arjan Meskers

Trainee patent attorney
I joined NLO in February 2023 as a trainee patent attorney and have a passion for science and engineering, whether it is mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering or physics. At my previous job I was active in R&D and was primarily dealing with concept systems and low TRL technology, i.e. operating on the inventor’s side. During this period, I went through the process of getting a patent granted myself. I am confident that IP protection helps advancing science and technology and enables start-ups to get a foothold in the market and allows them to grow.


  • Electrical Engineering
  • Energy
  • Physics
  • Semiconductor topographies
  • Medical Technology
  • Optics
  • Mechanical Engineering

In my opinion, all scientific and engineering topics are fascinating when you start looking into details; dull scientific/engineering topics do not exist. I have always been keen in identifying and overseeing the interactions between multiple disciplines such as mechanics, optics and electronics (control) and in inventing novel solutions.

While working at the forefront of technology and designing concept systems I gradually learned the value and importance of IP. Especially in the field of Quantum technology I experienced that having the right IP in place is a driver for further innovation. Here at NLO I combine my gained insights and scientific/engineering expertise with legal expertise to assist clients with the many facets of IP.
