    Employed at AOMB since


    After successfully completing his studies of Medicinal Chemistry at the VU Amsterdam, Luc has been working within this professional domain since 2007. After working for several years in the patents department of an international pharmaceutical company and for a Dutch IP firm, he joined AOMB in April 2018. At AOMB Luc works as senior Dutch and European patent attorney.

    Besides his biochemical background, Luc also has experience with companies focusing on mechanical engineering and that makes him an all-round patent attorney.

    Luc is a member of the Business Unit SME. Direct contact with entrepreneurs is what really appeals to him. This enables him to feel particularly closely involved with his clients. To be present at the source of the latest innovations and to arrange everything for his clients is what he enjoys most about the IP profession!
