Meet and greet
Because of the nature of our firm, being specialized in IP and to that end having offices in several countries, you get to work on complex and interesting cases with a team of people from all over. Our yearly retreat helps to get to know everyone (in a much less formal setting…), making teamwork smooth and effortless across countries.
I would either be a competition law lawyer, which has always been my second field of interest, and which passes by every once in a while during my IP work as well. Or, I would be a carpenter, as a step up from my furniture making hobby 😉.
I personally like the fact that in IP, and especially in patent law, you are pushed to study (and understand) the technical side of things as well. You get the chance to look into innovations from a variety of sectors (from life sciences to coffee makers), which keeps it interesting, and keeps you on your toes.
As a by-product of the current Covid situation, I started reading a lot. Currently, I am reading The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. This novel has been on my list for about 10 years, and “thanks to” Covid I finally got around to it!
I recently started kitesurfing, which has jumped to the top of my list. As I would never skip an opportunity to go snowboarding either, snow-kiting may very well be next on my list, but first things first. Aside from that, I love – and particularly miss during these times – having a drink or a bite with friends.
Although as lawyers, we are trained to examine every rule and detail, it is good to be pragmatic and look at things from a business perspective as well. You might come up with an out-of-the-box solution to an at first sight purely legal problem!
