Daan Settels, Partner, Dutch and European patent attorney

Daan Settels MSc

‘My work at Patentwerk offers me the opportunity to work in detail with many different technologies, and it requires that I understand them properly and quickly. The difficult issues with which I am confronted daily require creative solutions. Using a custom approach, we solve the issues as thoroughly as possible for the client.


A great moment in my career, I believe, was the involvement of my colleagues concerning my acceptance as a partner and, a longer time ago, the attainment of my Dutch and European authority. And the fun festivities which followed these events, of course.’
