NautaDutilh has been awarded Benelux Trademark Firm of the Year (Law Firms) at the Managing IP Awards 2022. Congratulations to Tanguy de Haan, who was named Belgium Practitioner of the Year 2022.

“These awards demonstrate that we are the go-to firm for IP in our home jurisdictions," says managing partner Lieke van der Velden. "A well-deserved accolade that credits the efforts of our Benelux IP Team. We are of course specifically proud of Tanguy. He is an excellent IP litigator and authority, and this award shows the widespread appreciation from both clients and peers."
