WTR Global Leaders distinguishes between private practice and corporate practice. In the category ‘Private Practice, Benelux Agencies’, only 4 Dutch attorneys have been named, including Jeroen and Marlous. We would like to thank our clients and other contacts for their positive feedback.
WTR Global Leaders draws on market-leading research projects for the WTR 1000 and WTR 300 and aims to identify the elite of the trademark world in a single publication. Those included merit special attention owing not only to their expertise and experience in relation to creating, protecting, managing and enforcing critical brand rights, but also to their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients.
WTR Global Leaders therefore aims to illuminate what makes these individuals the leading lights of the industry and provide their critical insights into the strategic management of trademarks and – crucially – how to carve out a leadership career path.
WTR about NLO:
"One of the largest full-service IP consultancies around, NLO Shieldmark combines in-depth technical knowledge with thorough legal insights to provide a winning formula for clients. A consulting firm, rather than a filing factory, the young and growing team provides 21st century solutions. This year has been one of transition for NLO Shieldmark, with Jeroen Cornelis becoming managing partner, Marlous Stal-Hilders becoming head of the trademark department and three new trainees joining the team. Cornelis and Stal-Hilders form an enviable tag team and bring vast experience to the table, particularly when it comes to managing international portfolios. Masja van der Galiën and Milca Graver-de Looper are also experienced heads in the firm’s ranks. Van der Galiën takes her clients through all stages of a trademark lifecycle, leaving no stone unturned, while Graver-de Looper is a partner to a broad roster of clients, which she provides with honest, business-focused solutions. A new entry to the guide this year comes in the form of Florence Tordoir, a master mediator, negotiator and strategist whose breadth of sector experience knows nobounds."
