We are delighted to welcome Samantha Brinkhuis to our IPMT practice today, 1 August. Based in Amsterdam, she joins us from De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek. With extensive experience in both contentious and non-contentious matters, Samantha primarily assists clients with trademark, copyright and unfair competition matters. Her practice also covers trade secrets, media and entertainment law, advertising law, IP transactions, licensing, IP strategy and enforcement.
Burkhart Goebel, Head of the IP practice at Hogan Lovells, said: “Samantha is a strong addition to our Intellectual Property, Media and Technology practice. Her reputation in the market is outstanding and her cross-sector experience is a great asset.”
Samantha Brinkhuis added: “I am excited to join Hogan Lovells, a law firm of global scale and prestige with a highly regarded IP team. I am committed to providing clients with the best possible solutions to the legal challenges they face.”
This news was announced in May on HL.com as well as in other publications in English (WIPR, IPPro) and Dutch (Advocatie, Boek9.nl, Ie-forum.nl). Samantha joining us follows our continuing expansion with the the additions of Simon Roberts and Jason Leonard joining our practice group in New York and four new lateral partners in our San Francisco and Boston offices – Krista Schwartz, Patrick Michael, Kristin Connarn, and Bob Underwood.
