Before Bart started to work at Arnold & Siedsma, he first gained substantial research experience in the laboratories of major technical companies. He worked for companies such as Philips Semiconductors/NXP Semiconductors on the subject of RF front-end modules for mobile phones.
Through his industrial experience, he has an outstanding ability to translate between the theory and practice of technical inventions, and can act as an expert sounding-board for questions in this area.
At Arnold & Siedsma, Bart is responsible for grant procedures for patents in the fields of electrical engineering, physics and mechanical engineering. He specialises in the patenting of inventions in radio-frequency electronics, semiconductor physics, semiconductor manufacturing processes and telecommunications. Bart also has substantial experience in the drafting of mechanical engineering applications.

For Bart, the challenge of the specialist field of the patent attorney lies in the combination of technology, law and language. Logic plays a major role here. He finds it a challenge to grasp the essence of the invention in order to protect the idea in the best possible way.
