Boekx Advocaten has a specialist trade mark practice, working with a range of clients in the retail, design, plant variety, sports and automotive industries. The firm is a go-to for several major German, UK and US IP firms. A key part of Diederik Stols‘ IP practice focuses on anti-counterfeiting matters for retail sports and fashion brands. Hidde Koenraad represents large international and smaller domestic companies in trade marks, copyrights, design rights, domain names and plant variety rights disputes. Marc de Boer continues to be a key contact for clients in the entertainment space, while associate Lotte van Schuylenburch, who joined from Simmons & Simmons, specialises in image rights cases.
Since opening its doors in 2005, Boekx has become a popular one-stop shop for a slew of big-name clients that require vital support on complex media and IP briefs through a single point of contact. “A solid trademark litigator who is well versed in the law and a pleasure to work with”, Diederik Stols leads the compact team and ensures the swift, cost-effective delivery of holistic guidance across the contentious/non-contentious divide. He recently teamed up with Hidde Koenraad to represent Off-White in infringement actions across the European Union, and to manage BMW’s portfolio and assist the auto giant on enforcement matters. Koenraad has an aerial view of IP, having recently been appointed to the Community Plant Variety Office’s Board of Appeal”.
