Hans Bottema

Partner & Dutch and European patent attorney
I am a Physicist by origin and I feel privileged each time I get a sneak preview of the future and when I am able to help my clients see their ideas come to fruition. I am working with a team of 4 colleagues to provide our clients with IP that works.


  • Electrical Engineering
  • Physics
  • Medical Technology
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Energy
  • Unitary patent

I am a Dutch and European patent attorney with experience both in in-house practice and private practice in the fields of automotive, energy, off shore, medical devices, robotics and security documents.

I like to take a pragmatic approach towards IP and I have learned at Philips Electronics and Procter & Gamble to align the costs of IP protection with the underlying business case and expected revenues. Priority filings, multi jurisdiction prosecution, oppositions, litigation, licensing, valuation and due diligence are tools that I can help you put to best use both in Europe and overseas.

Physics whizz and managing partner Hans Bottema has deep experience across the patent lifecycle.
