Bart ten Doeschate talks about his job

Right from the start, I found Intellectual Property Law very interesting, because you find it everywhere: in the supermarket, while travelling and in the media. While law can be very abstract during your studies, IP law is very tangible. Many law students find it difficult to decide whether to become an attorney-at-law. Becoming a trademark and design attorney is one of the alternatives. In this profession, you are often more intensively involved with trademark and design law as a lawyer.

The nicest thing about my work is being involved with new trademarks. After you’ve provided advice and the trademark is registered, it’s quite exciting to see it on a billboard, for example. You also work with trademarks which are already well known. With these trademarks, your work tends to involve opposing infringements and supporting international expansion.

At NLO Shieldmark, you immediately get involved in the practice.

At NLO Shieldmark, you immediately get involved in the practice. And you also do the BMM training. You work on cases of big clients, but you will also soon get your own clients. Further, personal initiative is particularly appreciated here. For example, I enjoy writing articles for our website and am involved with new developments within our sector. They listen to you here, which means that you really feel part of the group. The teams consist of junior, medior and senior attorneys, so you can learn from everyone. The work at NLO Shieldmark is legally interesting, dynamic and very independent.
