Bart Laenen

Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy

Bart Laenen succeeds each time in mastering again the idea or the invention that is presented to him. As a result, he is proactive, not just in elaborating a patent application or argumentation in defending a file, but also in expanding the field of vision of the client in question. As a result, he is also capable of providing advice which has the starting point of the position and the interests of the client. He often sets tight deadlines for himself and will do everything to obtain them, or at least, en route, keeping the client informed about the processing of a project.
