Your Business First



"The most trivial of inventions can be a work of genius."

Christiaan Houben studied mechanical engineering in Delft, The Netherlands, and has been a patent attorney with EP&C since 1999. He is also actively involved in the New Business Foundation Haaglanden/Rijnland and has extensive international litigation experience, especially in France and Germany. Christiaan specialises in the agro-food industry, food & beverage industry and mechanical engineering.

Christiaan is analytical, professional, charming and when he needs to be, quite fierce. “Just take a good look around you. There are patents everywhere. Even the most trivial of inventions can be a work of genius which is why we always analyse things thoroughly: applications and patent protection alike. It is the only way of helping our clients stay ahead of the competition.”
