Your Business First


"Before an idea takes shape, I am already thinking about how to maximise its return."

Martijn Vermeulen studied Mechanical Engineering in Delft, The Netherlands, where he specialized in Systems and Control. He has been a patent attorney with EP&C since 2000 and became a partner of EP&C in 2009. 

Martijn represents clients in a variety of technological fields with a focus on high tech systems and medical devices, and ranging from start-ups to multinationals. His major clients are active in medical systems and instruments, lithography, solar panel technology, mechatronics, and dispensing systems.

With more than twenty years of experience, Martijn tailors his advice to the specific Intellectual Property needs of his clients. He assists his clients during product development to optimise their patent portfolio and in how to deal with third party rights. He is also regularly involved in court cases, oppositions, etc.

Martijn is analytical, precise, focused and a team player. “We have to make sure that industrial intellectual property is optimally protected and that our clients feel justified when doing so. This requires a thorough analysis and well formulated paperwork as well as a good idea of what the future may hold. Before an idea even takes shape, my brain is already thinking about how we can make the most of it. It’s a motivating and inspiring way of working.”
