The Gevers family takes the strong step forward by entrusting their brainchild to the professionals who put their shoulders to the wheel for years.
With a shareholder group of some 45 professionals and a new management team, GEVERS will maintain its leading reputation, being 'a giant within the little world of IP'.
For that, we can count on a rock-solid reputation and 125 years of enduring innovations.
A foundation on which we will continue to build in our new structure. With respect for the past while looking forward.
Our goal? Continue to refine and enhance our services. Digitalize our operations for communication efficiency and effective client collaboration. But above all: make our knowledge and advice maximally available for those who count on us.
By implementing new tools and digitalizing where needed, we strive to make more time for what matters most: advising our clients on all their intellectual property needs. Because that is how our knowledge comes to its fullest potential.
Participative ownership means that GEVERS is run by and for its professionals. This way, our employees are even more closely involved with our operations and are even more eager to go the extra mile – if that is even possible.
Run by experts in the field of intellectual property, we know what is stirring in our sector and are able to adapt our services accordingly. That is how we strengthen our position in the market and provide maximum support to our clients.
That is what GEVERS has always stood for and will continue to do in the future. Empowering our colleagues to grow and shape the next steps GEVERS is taking, will be one of the greatest drivers to success. When they have got what it takes and show they are deeply committed to GEVERS, every professional can become a shareholder – regardless of their position.
