In Eindhoven, Harm van der Heijden heads a team of six patent attorneys. Before coming to NLO, he worked as a researcher at Philips Research where he was involved in video processing, algorithms and systems. In 2006, he became an architect at NXP Semiconductors where he acquired experience in embedded software and signal processing architectures.
Van der Heijden: “For quite a while, my team and I have been implementing patent procedures for clients at home and abroad. This is a very interesting time for patent attorneys due to the huge steps being taken with regard to establishing a unitary patent for Europe. Our clients are increasingly finding their way to us as the specialist patent consultants for the whole of Europe. As a partner of NLO, I look forward to expanding the practice further”.
