Our practice focuses on exploitation of intellectual property rights and infringement matters and we have extensive litigation experience before the Dutch courts, the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) and the European Union Intellectual property Office (EUIPO). Furthermore, we advise on IP strategy, IP rights and IP documentation, including documentation relating to complex transactions. We have recently set up a filing practice, so that we can also assist our clients with trademark and design right filings before the BOIP and EUIPO. What makes us stand out is that we have a solid and experienced IP practice, and we are very well connected. We are experts in our own fields of law, but are aware that IP matters often touch upon other legal areas or will cross country borders. Holla legal & tax is a full service law firm, and lines of communication are short. Whenever needed, we will call upon the expertise and experience of our specialists in other fields of law.
