Brussels Crowell & Moring appoints new counsel

Crowell & Moring has promoted Matteo Mariano to the position of counsel, as of January 2024. In January 2023, the firm appointed Delphine Keppens to counsel and Evelien Jamaels to partner.

Matteo Mariano is an invaluable member of our Technology and Intellectual Property Department, who advises clients on all matters involving intellectual property rights. He is known for using creative solutions to obtain the best possible outcome and he represents clients from all industries, with a focus on the life sciences and technology sectors, and of all sizes, ranging from local small and medium-sized enterprises to multinational corporations. He focuses particularly on patent and trademark disputes and is always eager to understand the client’s business and the technical aspects of a case. He enjoys diving into new areas where law and technology interact in a new way, such as non-fungible tokens and the metaverse.
