Working at NLO brings together the best of both worlds. I can get the opportunity to work together with you as a client, and I can use my analytic skills in protecting IP rights in science and get to know all your latest inventions.

It gives me energy to work together with clients and science"

I bring a solid foundation in science with a PhD in Neuroscience at Utrecht University and further post-doctoral experience from Imperial College London. I’ve been involved in managing academic and commercial clinical trials working together with partners from academia, industry and regulatory agencies. I always get the job done with my results-driven approach and positive attitude. With my creative thinking, I find a solution to every problem.

Are you part of a start-up, SME or large enterprise? We can help each business. As long as your question is about protecting the IP rights of your invention or product, I can help you with your patent application together with our dedicated team of experts.
