“BarentsKrans is a first-class litigation firm” and its highly knowledgeable team “always delivers timely, practical and impeccably clear advice”. Although the side has built a sterling reputation for its work on behalf of major pharmaceutical companies, top-flight representation is a guarantee across a wide range of technical industries. For example, practice pillars Jaap Bremer and Marleen van den Horst have been part of a multi-jurisdictional team assisting InterDigital with its standard essential patents (SEPs). “A stand-out lawyer with an incisive legal mind, Jaap is always aware of the larger business concerns at play, and always comes with a practical and commercial approach. Pleasant, and punctual too, when Jaap is on board, there is never any reason to worry.” Van den Horst is also a recipient of glowing praise: “Marleen is the most knowledgeable person I know”, enthuses one client. “She is a profound IP expert and great at navigating commercial realities; she goes out of her way to understand a company’s business objectives and always ensures that the strategy matches up. She is a go-to for patentwork.”
