Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are treated as one common area with a uniform trademark law and one trademark office. Since the adoption of the Benelux Trademarks Act in 1971, there are no national trademark laws in any of the Benelux countries anymore.

Landmark is a Dutch boutique IP firm, specializing in trademark availability searches, filing and prosecution of Benelux and European Community trademarks and Benelux and EU-industrial designs (RCD). Of course we also handle oppositions and other administrative contentious matters. In this country trademark attorneys are not litigators, but we can refer our clients to several high quality IP solicitors, should the need arise.

We also deal with company name and domain name conflicts and arbitration procedures.

Although we are a relatively young firm, our professionals are very experienced and have worked for established trademark and IP firms in The Netherlands. Thanks to our international quality network we can offer our clients IP services on a global scale.

Our clients range from small locally operating companies to multinationals with a big trademark portfolio.

Since we are a smaller and rather internet orientated firm, we do not have much overhead, and can therefore afford to offer our services to our clients for rather competitive fees.

A good idea deserves protection

We love intellectual property and it is what we do best. We believe in excellence and we achieve this by combining decades of IP experience with youthful élan, by staying sharp and focused, with dedication to the needs of our clients.

We have renowned solicitors, patent attorneys and trademark attorneys. As is speed, straight forward communication, maximum personal attention, and direct and easy contact with the case manager. In other words, we stand for quality and clarity in the way we serve you, irrespective of the nature, urgency and complexity of the question or case.

We are conscious of the need to keep the costs as low as possible, reason why we offer a transparent and highly competitive cost structure. We make your business our business.

We have experience in proceedings before the European Patent Office, the Benelux and Community trademark offices, WIPO and the European Court of Justice. In complicated patent and trademark cases we often deal with cross-border issues. Thus we are at ease with high profile cases, complex legal issues and tough litigation, but always aiming at the most efficient way of protecting your interests.

As we constantly seek to surpass ourselves, we systematically monitor the quality of our services and are critical to ourselves and each other. We greatly value and appreciate feedback from our clients and welcome any discussion with you about the quality of our service.
