"Founded in 2013, Signify has quickly carved a niche for itself among Benelux’s elite trademark agencies. Relentlessly high standards, tailor-made advice and hands-on partner involvement are the hallmarks of the compact boutique’s trade. Led by a close-knit team of experienced soft IP professionals, the young practice was boosted by the arrival of former VO Patents & Trademarks department head Michiel Haegens in late 2016. The president of the Benelux Association of Trademark Attorneys, he “has a deep knowledge of case law and is a big-picture thinker on intellectual property who dispenses important tactical insights. He is easy to work with and very accessible”. “Top-drawer attorney” Haegens joins founding partners Merel Kamp and Peter van der Wees at the Signify helm. An especially popular choice among small and medium-sized enterprises and Netherlands-based international brands, Kamp is known for her strategic savvy and client-handling skills; she also has a penchant for pharmaceuticals trademarks. A 20-year veteran with a cultivated and nuanced grasp of IP matters, van der Wees comes into his own when executing challenging cross-border instructions."
