Who we are
Geographical proximity of patenting bodies
Arnold + Siedsma has offices close to the two headquarters of the European Patent Office, the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property and the NL Agency.
With our offices near the European Patent Office in Munich and The Hague, we can easily attend oral proceedings and carry out other procedural work. As we work in the immediate vicinity of both offices of the European Patent Office, the lines of communication with the European Examiners can be kept short and an informal face-to-face meeting with an Examiner can be quickly arranged if this is required to make sure that grant proceedings run smoothly for you.
The same applies to the granting of trademarks. Our office in The Hague is just around the corner from the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property. We maintain close contact with the people working for these bodies to ensure that the proceedings are conducted as quickly and successfully as possible.
