Chambers Europe 2019 about Höcker Advocaten: "respond quickly, understand our needs and always give well-balanced advice"

We are honoured to have been ranked again in this year’s edition of Chambers.

In this year’s edition we have been ranked again in the area of Intellectual Property – mostly trade mark/copyright – and it makes us proud that we have climbed from Band 5 to Band 4: “Increasingly notable IP team with a strong portfolio of performing rights and copyright clients. Regularly acts for collecting societies and artist associations on anti-piracy proceedings, licensing issues and copyright levy matters. Also acts for international companies on counterfeiting and trade mark prosecution. Strengths: Clients appreciate that the lawyers “respond quickly, understand our needs and always give well-balanced advice.Others note: “Their advice is to the point,” adding: “They come up with solutions for what we have to deal with and are accessible and fast with their advice and problem solving.

We are very pleased to see that Jacqueline Seignette, partner of the IP team, has been ranked again as Leading Individual in her area of expertise: ”Jacqueline Seignette focuses principally on copyright and anti-piracy matters. She is valued by an interviewee for her “strategic overview” and also highlighted by another source as a “very good and reliable” lawyer. Her client base includes a range of collective management associations and performing rights bodies.”

We are also very proud of the first ranking of Jasper van Hulst as Leading Individual in the field of Employment: “Market commentators report that the newly ranked Jasper van Hulst of Höcker Advocaten is “client-oriented and focused on solving problems.He is very responsive and commercially oriented,” states one interviewee, while another notes: “He is very precise and never overlooks details. He is a fast thinker and very proactive.” Van Hulst handles transactions, terminations and negotiations of collective labour agreements.”

A sincere thank you to our clients and peers who have been so kind to take part in Chamber’s research for their continued support. We also thank our team of lawyers and support staff, who have all contributed to this success.
