Marty Wulferink

Dutch and European patent attorney
I have been working as a Dutch and European patent attorney for NLO since April 2018. My speciality fields are life sciences, pharmacy and chemistry. I particularly enjoy giving clients strategic IP advice in any of these areas. My clients always receive my undivided attention, which allows me to give them customised advice that ties in with the needs of their particular situation. I am confident that my experience as a patent attorney and as a project leader at a pharmaceutical start-up will make a real difference to your organisation.

My prior experience as a researcher and project leader at a pharmaceutical start-up has ensured I am well versed in all stages of medicine development. What is more, I am the joint inventor of three patent families. In 2008, I made a career change and trained to become a patent attorney. I was a self-employed patent attorney for six years before joining NLO and advised start-ups, business owners and universities on patent strategy and patentability.
