Korstiaan Groot

Benelux and European trademark and design attorney
I have been working as a trademark and design attorney at NLO Shieldmark since May 2018. My main involvement is in trademark and design law cases, but copyright and domain name law can also play an important role. As well as handling trademark and design registrations, I investigate trademark availability and prepare cease and desist letters and agreements.

  • Contracts
  • Trademark law

My clients are active in various sectors and comprise both start-ups and large multinationals. By being solution-driven, I ensure I can help my clients as effectively as possible. 

By being solution-driven, I ensure I can help my clients as effectively as possible.

After graduating from university I did internships at various law firms specializing in intellectual property law. I then decided to continue my career as Legal Counsel at an international anti-counterfeit organization, where I gained experience of dealing with infringements of intellectual property rights.

Away from work I enjoy sport: as well as having played football almost all my life, I play squash and also enjoy running.
