IAM published its renowned Patent 1000 Guide last week. De Clercq & Partners is very proud to announce that our firm has once again managed to secure a place in the highest rankings of the Guide, which is labeling us as a highly recommended firm for patent prosecution in Belgium.

On top of the accolade, IAM also sang a few words of praise about our firm. "One of Belgium’s most prestigious patent prosecution shops, De Clercq & Partners is home to a “solid team of highly qualified experts”[...] providing technically astute, commercially minded guidance." 

Moreover, the following colleagues were listed as recommended individuals:

  • Ann De Clercq
  • Koen Vanhalst
  • Liesbet Paemen
  • Andrej Michalík
  • Sakina Bounaga
  • Jeff Gyi
  • Caroline Hennin

The IAM Patent 1000 aims to identify world-class, private practice patent experts and has over the years, become a fixed value within the industry. To arrive at the 2021 rankings, IAM undertook an exhaustive qualitative research project to identify outstanding firms and individuals across multiple jurisdictions. When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of knowledge, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account, as well as positive peer and client feedback.
