Solliciteer nu

(Deze vacature is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels)

NLO is looking for a qualified US Patent Attorney or Agent to join our team!

Innovation is the major driver for growth. Patent protection for technical innovations provides an important stimulus for companies and institutions to invest in the development and commercialisation of such innovations. No wonder that the commercial importance of patents is growing. NLO, a leading IP-firm based in the Netherlands and Belgium, is also growing and looking for an additional US Patent Attorney or Agent to help our clients navigate the US patent system.

You will join a team of experienced patent attorneys and agents who have come from differing backgrounds: industry or previous IP firms, but who share the same vision of what IP should mean to a company.

You are a strong personality who can impart knowledge and experience across the team when required but who can also show consistent high work output

What you will be doing
As a Patent Attorney, you play an important role in bringing innovation to the market. You will be dealing with the innovations of national and international companies and act as a sparring partner for R&D managers and their in-house patent attorneys.

As part of our US practice team you will assist in growing our reputation as a firm with special expertise in this area. You will advise both external and internal clients in relation to US applications and the US system to better protect their intellectual property, knowledge and ideas and actively help them manage and develop their US and global patent portfolio.
