Willem is the managing partner of Hoyng Monegier LLP. Willem’s practice primarily consists of litigating in the field of intellectual property law. Willem acts before all the national courts (the courts of first instance, the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court). He also regularly litigates before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the European Patent Office (EPO). Willem is also involved in advising on European patent strategies and coordinating and conducting European patent proceedings. He is the adviser of many innovative Dutch and foreign multinationals, including pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies.
Willem is a member of a select group of lawyers admitted to appear before the Dutch Supreme Court. Indeed, he handled his first supreme court case in 1973. Willem’s track record for IP litigation before the Netherlands’ highest court is unsurpassed.
Willem is a professor of Intellectual Property Law at the University of Tilburg. He has written numerous publications in the field of intellectual property law. In 2002, Willem received the Wim Mak award for his article on the use of market research in legal actions involving trademark law.
Patents Law Practice:
Patents are there to protect your investment in the future of your company. Whatever the issue, we will defend, enforce and protect your patents through our dedicated teams of patent lawyers.
HOYNG MONEGIER’s patent litigators are among the very best in Europe. Lawyers and patent attorneys at the firm have been involved in many of the leading patent cases over the past decade and more. The world’s most innovative companies in the pharmaceutical, biotech, electronics, telecoms and consumer goods industries entrust their high-end litigation to us. We are also consulted by authorities and institutions on issues of patent policy, such as the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court. Our enthusiasm for and understanding of technology sets us apart from our competitors: we make it our business to know your business. Whether it is a question of setting up a Europe-wide legal defence of for example a blockbuster pharmaceutical, of putting customs border programs in place to block infringing goods from entering the EU, or of using search and seizure measures to gather evidence of infringement, we will do whatever it takes to protect and enforce your rights. In case you are accused of infringing the patent rights of a competitor, we will mount the very best defence possible, and deploy any counter-measures necessary to remove the threat to your business.
We are not just, however, exceptionally persistent litigators. We are also experienced negotiators, mediators and arbitrators. If doing a deal is better than pursuing the matter through the courts, we will tell you so, and seek to ensure the best resolution possible. We see litigation as a business tool, a means to an end. Not an end in itself.
