OPENING LEUVEN BRANCH

You may have noticed it on the contact page of our website, but starting this week, Stijn will man our Leuven branch at Officenter in Haasrode. Leuven being a hotspot of start-up companies in Flanders, and already serving a number of clients in the area we felt it the right moment to open a Leuven Branch now Stijn qualified as EPA.

To start, Stijn wil be in Leuven twice weekly, but with a clear objective to expand LC Patents presence in the region. The main office and administrative center remains in Hasselt.
