Patentwerk – Netherlands 2021

JUVE Comment

This small patent attorney firm has a good reputation for patent prosecution involving chemicals and mechanics patents. When it comes to the latter, law firms like to call on Bas Langenhuijsen in patent disputes before the Dutch patent courts for his litigation experience and technical support.

Patentwerk is less visible than NLO, V.O. and De Vries & Metman in big-ticket litigation for major industrial corporates; it is recommended rather for its work for SMEs and venture capital investors. With only eight patent attorneys, Patentwerk is the smallest of the major Dutch patent attorney firms.
