My name is Pierre Konings, Benelux and European Trademark and Design Attorney. I founded KONINGS Trademarks in September 2014.
Trademark and Design Attorney career
My career as Trademark and Design Attorney started in 1996 with AkzoNobel, where I worked for the pharmaceutical business N.V. Organon, and later for Schering-Plough and Merck & Co., Inc., managing trademarks worldwide. In 2013-2014 I was Trademark Attorney at Intellectual Property Offices in Weesp and Amsterdam. I participated at the Common Gateway project of EUIPO for improving accessibility of trademark databases
Resolving legal conflicts with mediation
During court cases worldwide I was also involved with mediation and noticed that legal conflicts can be resolved quickly with mediation. As MfN-registermediator (2016) I am specialized in legal business mediation. More information can be found on my website KONINGS Mediation
