Its locally qualified patent attorneys file national patent applications in Belgium, France and the Netherlands. GEVERS professionals validate granted European patents directly at the national patent offices of Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Monaco, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the Netherlands. Further, using the centralised location of GEVERS in Europe and its broad European network, GEVERS can validate your granted patents in all other member states of the European Patent Convention.
