09/05/2022

Taylor Wessing is pleased to announce the arrival of partner Patricia Cappuyns and Associate Narmeen Al Ganim, who will strenghten the Patents & Innovation team in Brussels. 

IP Partner Christian Deconinck: “In 2021 we expanded our legal services in Brussels and took another step towards becoming a full service office in Belgium. As a result of the expansion, we moved to a new location: W16 Boulevard de Waterloo 16. Over the past few years our Benelux Patents & Innovation practice has grown significantly, which also resulted in great testimonials and our rise in rankings, including those of IPSTARS, Chambers and Legal 500. We are pleased to welcome partner Patricia Cappuyns and Associate Narmeen Al Ganim to the Taylor Wessing family and to the Patents & Innovation team. The addition of Patricia and Narmeen fits perfectly in our strategy to be in pole position for the new Unitary Patent system.

Patricia Cappuyns has over 20 years of experience in patent and trade mark litigation and advisory work. Patricia has argued many IP cases before the Belgian and European courts and has represented clients in several FRAND investigations by the European Commissions at the interface of patent and competition law. Throughout the years, Patricia has been active in a wide range of technologies, including life sciences, construction, the chemical industry, telecommunications and mechanical engineering. After teaching Patent Law for seven years as an Associate Professor at the University of Liège, Patricia is now teaching the Intellectual Property Law course at the Brussels School of Governance.  She is also a regular lecturer at the Brussels School of Competition, the European Academy of Law (ERA), AIPPI and LES. She is ranked in IAM Patents 1000, WTR and Chambers, listed as a Patent Star in the IP Stars list for Belgium and recommended as a Global Leader for Patents in Who’s & Who Legal.
