The Brussels partners of the IP boutique recently elected Liesbeth Weynants as managing partner.
As head of the life sciences practice, Weynants handles intellectual property matters, regulatory issues, antitrust disputes and data protection.
She succeeds patent litigation expert Steven Cattoor who said “Liesbeth is one of the absolute and uncontested leaders in the Belgian IP and Life Sciences regulatory field, and we are convinced that she will manage the Brussels office with the same flair, energy and dedication as her day-to-day client practice.”
Weynants is the second woman to be appointed to the position. Sabine Agé was made managing partner in Paris following the firm’s merger with Véron & Associés.
“I am happy and honoured to pick up this new role. These are exciting and challenging times and I look forward to managing our fantastic team,” commented Weynants. “Jointly, we will make sure that our clients and peers continue to receive top-notch advice, contracts and litigation assistance.”
