Brinkhof is lauded as one of the top IP firms in Europe. One of its clear strengths is the ability to coordinate litigation across Europe and beyond. Pharma, biotech, electronics, and various food and other consumer goods are some of its sector expertise and it has close connections in academia and the judiciary. The firm is also known for its deep understanding of cutting edge technology. The well-known Richard Ebbink and Mark Van Gardingen head a talented team: ‘Stand-out partner’ Daan De Lange, ‘rising star’ Jan Pot, and Koen Bijvank, who is considered outstanding, particularly for oppositions.
