Designs and trademarks are valuable assets for a business. They reinforce the distinctive capacity, create more commercial strength, enhance the competitive position and make the company more attractive for investors. Intellectual property therefore plays a prominent role in a business strategy, which can be supported by the knowledge and experience of the trademark and design attorneys of NLO Shieldmark.

NLO and NLO Shieldmark: more than 125 years of experience

NLO Shieldmark is the second largest trademark and design bureau in the Netherlands and a leading player in this field. The bureau is part of NLO, which means you also have access to the expertise of over 45 patent attorneys and the confidence of working with a company that has over 125 years of experience in intellectual property rights and intellectual property law.

NLO Shieldmark was founded when NLO took over Zacco Netherlands in 2013. The trademark and design activities of this Amsterdam company were merged with the existing practice in The Hague to form NLO Shieldmark. The name Shieldmark was already well known, as the Amsterdam company had been trading under this name since its foundation in the early 1990s.
