IP Stars has rated V.O. highly for its expertise and performance in 2021. Formerly known as Managing IP, this leading guide to IP firms has published annual rankings since 1989, listing the top IP firms worldwide by category.
After our firm was named ‘Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year’ for the Netherlands and ‘Cross-Border Patent Litigation Team of the Year’ in Europe by IP Stars earlier this year, recognition of our Dutch patent practice as ‘Tier 1 Patent Prosecution Firm’ followed later. Our trademark practice and our Belgian patent practice also received high rankings. In addition, individual recognition as ‘IP Star’ was granted to Bettina Hermann, Leo Jessen, Bernard Ledeboer, Marco Molling, Otto Oudshoorn and Herman Witmans in 2021. Furthermore, Jetze Beeksma, Henri van Kalkeren and Peter de Lange have been recognized as ‘Rising Star’, and Martin Klok and Rutger Timmer as ‘Notable Practitioner’.
We are, of course, extremely proud of these expressions of appreciation and will work hard to meet the high expectations again next year.
