Our staff

Our employees are proud of their work and passionate about their area of expertise: Intellectual Property. Accordingly, we help entrepreneurs find out the possibilities to protect a trademark, design or idea. The fact that BOIP is an independent organization means we cannot give personal advice. But what we can, and are keen to do, is to make entrepreneurs aware of the ways of the world of intellectual property: knowledgeable and accessible, active and direct. We know exactly what we are talking about. Conversely, we are also interested to find out what matters to you. So that we can provide you with the best possible service.
