NLO, a leading IP-firm based in the Netherlands and Belgium, is growing and looking for candidates who are interested in becoming a patent attorney.

What you will be doing

As a patent attorney, you play an important role in bringing innovation to the market.

You are in the privileged position to sit down with inventors, heads of research, in-house attorneys and commercial leaders to advise them on the protection of their inventions and knowledge and actively help them managing and developing their patent portfolio.

Within your team, you will get the opportunity to access support from highly experienced attorneys and from day one you will be actively involved in the day to day business.

The course generally involves one day a week, for three years. NLO pays for the entire training course and exams. In addition you are part of the NLO Academy. Together with all NLO trainees you will follow a varied program throughout the year.
