GEVERS experts are playing a leading role in professional organizations for both Patents and Trademarks and Designs !
On May 7 the Belgian members of the Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office (known as epi) gather in the Brussels office of GEVERS. The meeting was arranged by Margaret Mackett (European Patent Attorney and active member of the Professional Education Committee at epi) and will be presided by Francis Leyder.
Francis Leyder is president of the Institute since May 2017, after chairing committees since 2001 (the Harmonisation Committee first, then the European Patent Practice Committee). He joined Gevers Patents in 2017, as "of counsel".
At its general assembly of the Benelux association for Trademark- and Designlaw (known as BMM) a new board has been installed on April 11, 2019 (picture), with Johan Dedeckel (Senior Trademark & Design Attorney and partner at GEVERS) as President (a mandate for 2 years).
Previous presidents of BMM affiliated with GEVERS were late Florent Gevers (1979-1981), who was also a founding member in 1974, and Yves Roland (1999-2001).
