Good news galore today as De Clercq & Partners has once again earned a place in the IAM Patent 1000 Guide as a Highly Recommended firm for patent prosecution in Belgium. And that's not all, because for the second year in a row, the world-renowned Financial Times has also featured us as one of Europe's leading patent firms.


IAM Patent 1000

The IAM Patent 1000 has become the definitive directory exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading patent services providers. The extensive research process for this guide was conducted over several months by a team of full-time analysts, and involved more than 1,700 interviews with patent specialists across the globe. Legal and attorney firms and individual practitioners qualify for inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.

Hard work pays off as once again, De Clercq & Partners has managed to secure a place in the highest rankings of the IAM Patent 1000 Guide, labelling us as a highly recommended firm for patent prosecution in Belgium!

The guide has also published a few words of praise for our firm: “Depth of technical expertise, knowledge, attention to detail and efficient handling of instructions make De Clercq & Partners the first choice for patent prosecution work in Europe. [...] The group reliably suggests strategies that take into account the most recent legal and procedural developments at the EPO, and provides insightful, cost-effective guidance which obtains commercially meaningful patents.”
