Benelux: Netherlands

The Dutch legal scene remains relatively stable, with no significant revisions to its laws since they were aligned with the latest EU Trademark Directive. The full implications of Brexit are still unfolding, as professionals continue to assist rights holders through the transition period while keeping their ears to the ground to monitor further developments. The market has seen some healthy movement lately as new firms emerge and dynamic young practitioners assume leadership positions. The WTR 1000 rankings reflect these changes, as well as other lateral moves on the market.

AKD 

The “knowledgeable and experienced” lawyers at AKD adroitly handle everything from international portfolio management to complex litigation and licensing. Jemie – a multinational distributor and seller of horticultural products – is just one client among many that appreciate the diverse talents of Huib Berendschot and Roderick Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht. All-rounder Berendschot is celebrated far and wide for his strategic nous; while the “delightful, intelligent and results-oriented” Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht brings academic precision to briefs. “Outstanding litigator” Peter Claassen has spent over three decades in the game and is a font of wisdom at the firm.

BarentsKrans

A “high-quality, well-organised” full-service firm, BarentsKrans “is full of flexible, approachable and down-to-earth practitioners. The partners are fully involved in each mandate and the fees are always reasonable”. Its specialised IP division works in tandem with the commercial, corporate and competition groups to present wraparound solutions that fit the bill every time. Providing robust leadership to the group is Jaap Bremer, “one of the best trademark lawyers in the country” and a vital ally to industry leaders such as Epic Games, Facebook and stock-listed telecoms company Koninklijke KPN. “He is a fantastic litigator with exceptional strategic focus, excellent knowledge and a practical approach.” Often working alongside him and deserving of special mention, Jos Klaus “is full of potential and will stop at nothing to secure a victory for clients”.

BINGH Advocaten

“BINGH is my favourite firm in the Netherlands,” enthuses one foreign associate. “Its practitioners are honest, practical and focused on settling matters, but put up an excellent fight when necessary.” “They combine great services with top-notch expertise and sensible rates.” Although its all-inclusive offering covers myriad sectors, the side flourishes in particular in the fashion industry, where Lars Bakers has been representing a prestigious global brand for 18 years now. “He is appreciated for his direct but personable approach and his commitment to pushing the envelope in order to bring about the best results. The service he provides is truly outstanding.”

Bird & Bird LLP

“Efficient and responsive”, international titan Bird & Bird “provides superb advice founded on excellent analysis and consideration of all angles”. Handling some of the most prominent cases going, the Dutch contingent has recently been representing Asolo and Flügel in their long-term multi-jurisdictional battle against Red Bull over the cancellation of the FLÜGEL mark. The outcome is set to establish a precedent at the EU General Court and cause ripples in the EUIPO’s cancellation and opposition divisions. Lending insight on this is team captain Wouter Pors, who has also gone out to bat for Chiquita in multiple disputes with Fyffes regarding the HOLA BANANA! mark. Fellow contentious ace Armand Killan has been representing coating company PPG in several infringement proceedings, deftly unravelling a dense skein of trademark, unfair commercial practice and misleading advertising threads in the process. Nimbly traversing the contentious/non-contentious divide, Manon Rieger-Jansen “showcases the analytical, legal and interpersonal skills that make for a truly exceptional lawyer. She digests information quickly, formulates effective strategies and never crumbles under pressure”.

Boekx

One-stop shop Boekx is a discerning choice for brand owners seeking to gain or expand a foothold in the Benelux. It consistently seeks to add value and serve as an extension to in-house teams by living the same values as the companies it serves and keeping their commercial interests front of mind. Counsel of choice to BMW, Hidde Koenraad and Diederik Stols manage its regional portfolio astutely, put out infringement fires and take down counterfeiters on the daily. Koenraad has also been helping management guru David Allen to move his global business to an Amsterdam-based company. “A solid litigator with substantial expertise, Stols is super-talented and a great guy to work with or even against.”

Brinkhof

“A prominent litigation force in the Netherlands, Brinkhof has first-rate and pleasant attorneys, as well as a strong focus on branding, innovation and technology – all of which makes for a top-end boutique.” A key source of pride is its dedication to pioneering streamlined, digitalised services, which resonates with sophisticated tech multinationals such as Google. A star-studded line up comprises Kurt Stöpetie, Gregor Vos, Rutger Stoop and Adee Keppy. “Sharp, business-minded lawyer” Stöpetie “enjoys turning over every stone to ensure the best outcome is reached”. Immensely popular litigator and strategic thinker Vos “operates on an extremely high level and is definitely at the top of the field”. He recently prevailed for T-Mobile in infringement and misleading advertising proceedings. Recently promoted to senior associate, Stoop comes warmly recommended for his “prompt, clear and hands-on advice. He brings about fruitful deals thanks to his up-to-date legal knowledge, commercial sense and excellent negotiation tactics”. WTR 1000 newcomer and European trademark and design attorney Keppy is the person to call for meticulous prosecution and global portfolio management.

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek

Best known for their smooth handling of complex cases and polished performances before the Supreme Court, the practitioners at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek are surefooted in their representation of blue-chip companies; and with Tobias Cohen Jehoram leading the charge, that comes as no surprise. “One of the best trademark lawyers in the Netherlands, he is widely respected for his immense knowledge and expertise, especially in proceedings before the highest institutions in the country. Tobias is simply the number one guy for the job.”

Dentons

Newly featured in the Dutch rankings this year is global heavyweight Dentons. Its Amsterdam office has been ramping up its capacity with some judicious lateral hires, bringing the team headcount to 14. One of its most recent signings is former Nineyards practitioner Alexander Odle, who puts cross-border contentious matters to bed with finesse. Unlike many local players, Dentons also has its own in-house prosecution division, which is overseen by Alexander Van Laaren. “Straightforward and proactive, Alexander has good business sense and a friendly nature, making him a pleasure to work with.”

DLA Piper

International powerhouse DLA Piper has been protecting and enforcing intangible assets for decades and its local squad has earned a glowing reputation for its parallel imports practice in particular. Testament to this is its work for Moët Hennessy in a multi-jurisdictional dispute that went up to the Hague Court of Appeal; while this was in play, the side – led by Niels Mulder – also successfully resolved other ongoing disputes relating to the prestigious drinks company’s iconic brand. The co-head of DLA’s global soft IP group “is dedicated to every case he sits on, always comes perfectly prepared and presents his arguments convincingly”. Joining forces with him on the matter was legal director Alexander Tsoutsanis: “He is fearless in unexplored legal areas and tenacious when it comes to defining and incorporating new case law.” This is exactly why Tsoutsanis was engaged as co-counsel before the CJEU on behalf of Skykick in one of the headline-grabbing cases of 2020.

Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

With boots on the ground in 32 countries and an A-to-Z trademark offering, Eversheds Sutherland is perfectly positioned to assist both domestic and foreign clients looking to establish themselves locally and make waves further afield. “Down-to-earth and pragmatic, Thera Adam van Straaten and Benjamin van Kessel are highly skilled lawyers who can easily handle complex and challenging matters.” Adam van Straaten is a dyed-in-the-wool litigator who draws on her in-house expertise to level with patrons; while van Kessel’s pleadings brilliantly combine academic and innovative arguments.

Hofhuis Alkema Groen

Ascending to the gold tier this year is “well-established and first-class boutique” Hofhuis Alkema Groen. The ensemble has been on an inexorable upwards trajectory since its formation in 2012, chalking up a long list of precedent-setting victories and cementing its presence in the upper echelons of the market. Co-founders Jesse Hofhuis, Adonna Alkema and Arnout Groen have worked together for over 20 years, are seamless in their approach and garner warm plaudits. The work of the “clever and efficient” Hofhuis “shines with insightful opinions”; Alkema is “a smart and charismatic litigator who stands out for her open-mindedness”; while media law specialist Groen “is most impressive and an absolute joy to collaborate with”.

Hogan Lovells

Renowned global outfit Hogan Lovells has been making a conscientious effort to expand its Dutch offering, beefing up its contentious firepower in order to complement its robust prosecution and advisory practice. It found just the right person for the job in former De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek lawyer Samantha Brinkhuis, who has recently taken over the division after the retirement of Marc Wallheimer. Of late, this litigator par excellence has been handling enforcement matters for the likes of Deutsche Telekom, Nintendo and PepsiCo, to superb effect: “Hogan Lovells is a trusted trademark adviser in general, but Samantha provides the full spectrum of support. She really makes a difference by being proactive and thinking alongside her clients to provide tailor-made solutions.”

Hoogenraad & Haak, Advertising + IP Advocaten

A prominent name in the advertising world, Hoogenraad & Haak also maintains a vibrant trademark practice which vigilantly oversees food and retail portfolios and puts ironclad protection systems in place. Most notably, the ensemble has been assisting Lidl in its fight against infringers, securing positive results in the high-stakes case thus far. Orchestrating this strategy are “two very sharp and intelligent lawyers”, Maarten Haak and Daniël Haije. Haak draws on insight from his position as a deputy judge to deliver “educated, hands-on and practical advice”; while the personable Haije is an astute problem solver and a safe pair of hands in multi-pronged cases. Rounding off the squad is Moïra Truijens, an outside-the-box thinker who enjoys solving the trickier problems businesses face.

Houthoff

A new addition in the WTR 1000 this year is independent firm Houthoff, whose global reach and extensive sector specialisations have earned it an outstanding market position. The side has won many fans in the automotive industry, which take full advantage of its four European offices and carefully cultivated network of international representatives. Bringing ample trial experience to the team is “extremely knowledgeable Supreme Court lawyer” Thijs van Aerde. He has recently been representing the European Pallet Association in a significant and complex infringement scenario concerning the exhaustion of trademark rights, which should break new jurisprudential ground in relation to second-hand marks.

HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER 

HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER brings a “combination of academic depth and street-fighting spirit” to high-profile trademark cases. A perfect example is its recent win before the Dutch Supreme Court on behalf of FKP Soyuzplodoimport – a case which featured all of the firm’s ranked practitioners. Having counselled the brand since 2003, Joris van Manen and Laura Fresco know the ins and outs of its operations like the backs of their hands. “They provide incredibly valuable assistance and a high level of expertise, especially when working with foreign counsel across the world. Everything they do is perfect and cannot be achieved by anyone else.” The pair also come in for individual praise: “Joris is of the best Dutch litigators around. He fuses excellent legal knowledge with exceptional strategic negotiation skills; and even in cases where the chances are split 50/50, he can tip the balance in the client’s favour.” “Laura’s tactical eye makes her a pragmatic, direct and results-driven lawyer.” Frank Eijsvogels and Willem Hoyng also bring something special to the table: Eijsvogels delves into the nitty-gritty of each brief to obtain stellar results; while Hoyng has built the practice into the behemoth it is today and serves as a vital sounding board to patrons and peers alike.

Kennedy Van der Laan

Fashion, media and technology are strongholds for full-service Kennedy Van der Laan, which stays on top of emerging trends to keep its A-list clientele one step ahead of the competition. Highly regarded for its contentious nous, the ensemble recently added prosecution to its offering, meaning that anything a brand owner could ever want can now be found under one roof. It has also established the Customised Alliance partnership, a network of independent local firms around the world; Alfred Meijboom played an instrumental role in its creation. “An excellent all-round practitioner”, he thrives in the digital realm and has a flair for resolving domain-name disputes. Drawing on insight from his time as a public prosecutor and judge, Maarten Shut knows exactly what to include in his arguments, pleads with authority and shuts down counterfeiters with minimum fuss.

KLOS cs Attorneys at Law

The tight-knit, flexible IP practitioners at KLOS have a can-do attitude and are enthusiastic about everything they do – whether that be shepherding non-traditional marks onto the register or bringing taxing disputes to a successful close. Namesake and “prominent market figure” Sven Klos is “extremely knowledgeable and exceptionally experienced. He always puts up a fantastic, but fair fight in court”. Klos is a go-to on colour, 3D and other creative rights.

Lawnch

Operating out of two bases in Eindhoven – the High Tech Campus and Strijp-S – LAWNCH is ideally positioned to assist the country’s most innovative entrepreneurs and rights holders. Its state-of-the-art services, coupled with an approach as dynamic as that of the patrons it serves, makes it the perfect match for those looking to enter or shore up their position on the market. Epitomising these values is Gino Van Roeyen, “an awesome, strategic lawyer and an empathetic person with tonnes of passion and drive. Gino truly cares about his clients’ best interests”. Van Roeyen also helps to nurture the next generation of attorneys as a teacher and examiner at the Benelux Education for Trademark and Design Attorneys.

Le Poole Bekema

Nimble boutique Le Poole Bekema is an exciting new entry in the WTR 1000 this year. The Dutch outfit has carved a niche in the food and beverage sector, attracting the attentions of giants such as McDonald’s and Unilever; and is also making a name for itself in the media industry, having recently acted for Caryn Mandabach Productions, the producer of cult show Peaky Blinders. Taking the lead on all three matters is Anne Bekema, who consistently goes the distance in court with her cleverly devised strategies and big-picture thinking. Operating in a similar vein, Laura Broers never sits on the fence when giving advice: she understands the landscapes in which patrons operate and ensures that her counsel is fully aligned with their commercial objectives.

Leeway Advocaten

Effusive praise for Leeway Advocaten pours in from both clients and competitors: “The whole team delivers top-notch work that saves companies time, effort and costs. Its lawyers are knowledgeable, sharp thinking, effective and practical.” “The service level and commercial spirit are fantastic, and the advice provided is exactly what is needed in the circumstances at hand, which is evident in its success rate.” The set takes its cue from Michiel Odink, a contentious ace entrusted by the likes of Warner Bros and leading Dutch retailer HEMA. “Rarely do you come across a practitioner who is as talented as Michiel; his advice is underpinned by excellent legal knowledge and he relays it in an easily digestible manner. With him on board, you get more than what you signed up for – he acts as a mentor and really cares about achieving the best possible outcome.” Deftly navigating each stage of the brand lifecycle, fashion and media aficionado Marga Verwoert is “super-approachable, crystal clear in her advice and has an entrepreneurial mind”. Focusing on building long-lasting relationships with businesses is Remco van Leeuwen, who has been a repository of trust for the Karl Lagerfeld Group for years. In the words of one client: “I know Remco as a reliable, responsive, analytically sharp and true professional who is not afraid to go the extra mile to find a suitable solution. He always sees the bigger picture, combines it with thorough legal and industry insight, and provides very good strategic advice.”

NautaDutilh

NautaDutilh has a formidable presence in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, giving it seamless regional coverage, which frequently makes the difference on large-scale mandates. This point was proven when it took on a high-profile case for GlaxoSmithKline in relation to its colour mark which is currently making ripples on the global stage. Bringing her strategic eye to this matter, Anne Marie Verschuur makes a well-deserved move into the gold tier this year. Verschuur is “a strong litigator with a great academic mind and the ability to formulate tight arguments”. Colleague Fleur Folmer flawlessly tackles instructions across the contentious/non-contentious divide, but shines particularly brightly when brokering IP-rich deals. Richard van Oerle and Charles Gielen are leading lights of the Dutch IP market: Van Oerle has a unique perspective courtesy of his time as a judge at the Hague District Court; while the “very sharp and well-respected” Gielen has a litany of wins in landmark battles to his name.

Nysingh 

Intellectual property is a central pillar of Nysingh’s practice. Its dedicated brand protection unit is right at home in the fashion and consumer products spheres, and is a trusted guide for foreign entities seeking to establish their brands and safeguard their rights in the Netherlands. “Highly skilled in trademark and unfair competition matters”, Tjibbe Fokkens is “a lovely person with a business-oriented approach. He analyses each case and its possible solutions thoroughly before preparing an effective strategy, bearing in mind that enforcement procedures differ in each country. Tjibbe is well organised, practical and of immense value to any company”.

Ploum 

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020, Ploum has earned the enduring loyalty of brand-rich multinationals such as Coty and Samsung Benelux. Captain Willem Leppink is one of the distinguished practitioners in the country: “He is a true subject-matter expert and a fantastic communicator who can deliver nuanced but very practical solutions. Hands-on and results-oriented, Willem gets to grips with any situation and quickly comes up with a way to solve it.” He oversees Western Digital’s portfolio with verve and coordinates seizures across Europe, the Middle East and Africa along with Sabin Tigu, the firm’s resident parallel imports expert. The pair have also linked up for Harley Davidson to advise and litigate several cases, most often against grey dealers.

Simmons & Simmons LLP

The Dutch contingent of Simmons & Simmons adopts a forward-thinking approach and maintains a laser focus on innovation: as an example, it recently developed an artificial intelligence-driven tool, Rocketeer, that can predict the outcome of EU trademark disputes to 93% accuracy. Although still in the feedback stage, this is a major draw for entities seeking extra reassurance in their decision-making processes. Providing percipient counsel to household names such as L’Oréal, the “talented, passionate and responsive” Paul Tjiam “shows incredible eagerness to provide tailored advice, but also invests in his relationships in order to build an efficient workflow”. “Paul is the perfect candidate for developing and implementing a strategic game plan in complicated cases, thanks to his great commercial insight, amazing legal depth and sensitivity to tight budgets. He is incredibly talented, on top of his game and without a doubt becoming a leader in the field.”

Taylor Wessing

Taylor Wessing has been steadily building out its local offering, which provides a 360-degree service through its one-stop shop set-up, with judicious support from its international network as and when needed. The side’s management of thousands of marks is effortless – not least thanks to the vigilant quality control of Maarten Rijks. The Benelux trademark and design practice head is a tough adversary with an uncanny ability to predict the likelihood of success before districts courts, courts of appeal and the Supreme Court.

Van Doorne

Making its debut in the WTR 1000 this year, Van Doorne makes it its mission to give clients the close personal attention of a boutique, but with the backing of a full-service firm behind it. It has lately been keeping the market free of fakes for Air Supplies Holland through multiple proceedings led by practice helmswoman Kriek Wille. “An excellent lawyer, she goes through the potential outcome of every case and presents all of her findings, including the costs of each, before making a decision.”

Van Kaam Advocaten

The dedicated troop at Van Kaam excels at crafting watertight enforcement strategies, getting lucrative licensing deals across the line and sewing up challenging briefs for media players such as World Press Photo Foundation, Dutch Film Works and NVBF, the Dutch association of art houses and movie theatres. All-rounders Bertil Hajm van Kaam and Remco Kloters oversee things from the top. “A no-nonsense lawyer who cuts right to the chase”, Bertil is “very good at generating a worthwhile return on a client’s investment”; while Kloters is celebrated for his versatility and resourcefulness, and is increasingly sought out by social media influencers for pragmatic guidance on contractual matters.

Visser Schaap & Kreijger

The deep academic expertise that characterises Visser Schaap & Krijger is reflected in various aspects of its offering: for example, it offers individually tailored monthly seminars to bring clients up to speed on emerging issues and the latest case law, complemented by regular general education sessions. Providing the office with robust leadership is Jacqueline Schaap. Her knowledge of copyright, designs, trademarks, advertising and media law translates into perfectly suited wraparound solutions for any occasion. Her advice has been sought out by the likes of Skyhigh Television, a major Dutch television production company and Van Gogh Museum Enterprises. By her side is Dirk Visser a prominent professor and “a top specialist with an excellent legal understanding and brilliant debating skills”. One of his recent highlights is on behalf of Heineken, where his impeccable advocacy skills brought home a victory in a high-profile dispute and complex concerning EU, IP and international trade law as well as misleading advertising and the protected designation of origin.

Vondst Advocaten NV

“Among the most skilled and efficient firms in the Netherlands”, Vondst has an impeccable track record in complex enforcement matters. One recent highlight was a win for the University of Amsterdam before the Court of Appeal in The Hague concerning its AMSTERDAM UNIVERSITY mark in one of the first Dutch cases based on the Neuschwanstein case and one of the few heard on merchandise products. Herwin Roerdink was critical to this mission: “He has a very strategic and pragmatic way of thinking that incorporates commercial and technical understanding. He is not afraid to challenge the usual practice of intellectual property, but is also very pleasant to work with.” Tech whizz Tjeerd Overdijk finds “timely, efficient and creative solutions which demonstrate his profound knowledge of the law”.

Windt Le Grand Leeuwenburgh

Windt Le Grand breaks into the WTR 1000 this year on a wave of recommendations. Its practitioners have got the resolution of multi-faceted disputes down to a fine art and bring the heat in forums all the way up to the CJEU. It recently appeared before the latter on behalf of Dutch entity PHZ in a high-profile case on the free movement of goods which has kept both ranked practitioners – Gerard van der Wal and Timme Geerlof – busy. Van der Wal has incredible experience in this setting and is an authority on matters at the intersection of EU, IP and pharmaceutical law. “Refreshingly innovative”, Geerlof “is not afraid to choose alternative ways to approach a dispute. He is client focused, extremely sharp and quick on his feet, thanks to his splendid knowledge of jurisprudence and relevant case law”.

Other recommended experts

“A highly reputable, likeable and reliable” litigator, Joost Becker can be found at Dirkzwager. Over at Legaltree, trademark attorney and dispute resolution whizz Marjolein Driessen is a favourite of artists and designers, who appreciate her dedication and passion to their industry. Clairfort’s Evert van Gelderen is hailed by peers as a “hardworking, hands-on practitioner whose effective communication and pragmatic advice ensure that clients always get the best outcome”. A “leader in the field”, Frits Gerritzen is “a hard worker with a deep well of knowledge who will go to great lengths to find optimum solutions”. He is based at Allen & Overy. Stibbe’s Jasper Klopper is the force behind much of the firm’s transactional work; he recently assisted insurance group Athora in its acquisition of Vivat for around €2.6 billion. Automotive, fashion and entertainment heavyweights flock to Leonie Kroon of Dillinger Law for her abundant contentious and anti-counterfeiting know-how. At Good Law BV, Carja Mastenbroek has been tirelessly duking it out for industry giants such as Puma and Tommy Hilfiger. Colleague Sander Verbeek is an “excellent all-round expert who keeps clients’ commercial goals in mind”. Recently founding her own firm, Mount Law, Josine van den Berg consistently delivers “dedicated, creative solutions that covers every angle. She is incredibly smart and tremendously personable”.
