IAM Patent 1000 2020: BarentsKrans’ star is rising

IAM has just published the ninth edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals – a guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe. We are proud to report that recommendations from clients and peers have resulted  in BarentsKrans’ IP & Technology team ascending to the silver category this year. IAM’s glowing recommendation reads as follows:


‘Ascending to the silver tier this year, BarentsKrans “stands out for its ability to understand clients’ individual needs and adjust strategies accordingly without ever compromising on its tenacity in litigation”. A vital partner to generic pharmaceutical companies, it puts in resonant performances in commercially consequential life sciences actions as a matter of routine. “Digging into the details of cases and providing rock-solid support” to Mylan and many others, Jaap Bremer “has unrivalled knowledge and expertise in the pharmaceutical area and is one of the best patent litigators in the country. He sees things from the perspective of his clients and applies a rigorous intellect to the task of constructive problem solving. He stays calm under pressure and is quick on his feet.” He stands shoulder to shoulder with head of intellectual property and technology Marleen van den Horst, who is also distinguished by her pharmaceutical and regulatory knowledge: “She pushes forward energetically and is always ready to pursue unconventional approaches if they look promising.”’
