As of 1 January 2018, Annemie Swinnen has come to strengthen our branch in Leuven as European patent attorney. Annemie, a chemistry graduate, has an impressive track record. She worked as an all-round, in-house patent attorney and IP team manager in the chemical industry for many years.
There she gained skills in the development of policy, procedures and strategies for IP, and in drawing up and assessing IP agreements. Furthermore, she has a wealth of expertise in the outsourcing of IP services and is actively involved in a range of KVIV/CEIPI patent courses. At V.O., Annemie is continuing her patent practice with a great deal of enthusiasm and she is a welcome addition to the team.
