From its Rotterdam base, Windt Le Grand Leeuwenburgh  has a focus on IP law and its intersection with wider EU law. Acknowledged as ‘a very specialised IP boutique‘, what sets it apart is its ability (especially regarding trade marks and patent law) to navigate regulatory and EU laws in relation to, for example, the labelling or pricing of pharmaceutical products  and the import or export of products in the EU. Its cases often reach the Benelux Court of Justice and one is pending before the Supreme Court of the Netherlands. Its work also covers trade mark, design and copyright  infringement matters in various areas of consumer goods with cases frequently going before the EUIPO. Timme Geerlof  and Gerard van der Wal  are the highly rated practice heads.
