Marco Molling

Partner at VO Patents & Trademarks

Marco Molling worked for small laboratory equipment company Prince Technologies (part of Helena BioSciences Europe) for five years, where he was involved in product development, international marketing and project management. Thanks to this experience, he can empathise with small to medium-sized enterprises and their specific challenges, although he also serves the interests of scientific institutes and multinationals. Mr Molling joined VO Patents & Trademarks in 2000.

Mr Molling’s IP expertise lies in the general field of chemical patents, with an emphasis on food technology, process technology and industrial biotechnology. Further, he is particularly interested in the fields where chemistry and other disciplines meet (eg, medical technology and laboratory technology). His work mainly focuses on drafting patent applications and undertaking prosecution in various jurisdictions, as well as European oppositions and (occasionally) litigation.

Mr Molling received his MSc in chemical technology from Eindhoven University of Technology in 1994.
