The IAM Patent 1000 ‘The World’s Leading Patent Professionals 2021’ identifies the best patent specialists around the world. BarentsKrans has again secured a silver position this year as one of the world’s leading patent law firms.

IAM Patent 1000 on BarentsKrans:

Since its inception, BarentsKrans has provided game-changing support in complex disputes for global pioneers in the life sciences and telecommunications industries. For example, it has been working with Mylan for over 25 years on SPC and invalidation proceedings, while also advising on product launches and contractual matters. Playing an integral role on these briefs are Jaap Bremer and Marleen van den Horst. “They collaborate with external patent attorneys and in-house teams really well, and give everyone sufficient room to contribute and come up with valuable solutions.”

Department head Bremer’s personable approach, eye for detail and deep patent knowledge are appreciated by those seeking to defend intricate inventions. Van den Horst has a similar penchant for advanced technologies and complicated cases, particularly in the life sciences. “In addition to the expertise she brings, I am also very impressed by the quality of Marleen’s efforts and her motivation to continuously support us in realising our dream,” reports one client. “We fought our case in multiple jurisdictions and Marleen’s defence was tried, tested and true.”
