'A trademark consultant should never get tired of explaining the importance of a well-defined trademark policy. Business success is practically always based upon one or more successful brands. Thus, the continuation of this success depends on the sound protection of trademark rights'.
Paul Thiel was born in 1950. He was the first student to pass the BMM examination (Benelux Association of Trademark and Design attorneys) in 1977. At that time he already ran a trademark practice in one of Europe's most important trademark attorney firms.
In 1990 Paul joined KNIJFF and a couple of years thereafter he became senior partner. This position reflects the importance of his work for KNIJFF's clients with trademark interests throughout the world.
Paul is especially respected for his knowledge of Europe with its changing and expanding structure of local trademark regulations and laws.
'I think I'm good at giving my client a clear analysis of his situation. Of course, it's the client's privilege to make choices. But, I will always try to prevent him from making the wrong one'.
Paul appreciates what colleagues and clients call his stronger points. 'Once Paul really concentrates on a trademark problem he is likely to surprise you with a solution both valuable and creative...'.
