Rogier de Vrey is an attorney in our IP/TMC Practice Group. After 6 years of academic experience as a lecturer and researcher at the University of Utrecht, Rogier put his passion into practice in 2005 when he became an IP lawyer with a large Amsterdam law firm.
During his PhD studies, Rogier conducted research at several renowned institutions, including the European Commission and the Max Planck Institute in Munich. His thesis titled “Towards a European Unfair Competition Law” was published by Brill Academic Publishers (2005).
Joining CMS in 2008, Rogier is known by his clients for combining the assertiveness and agility of a practical attorney with the methodical and analytic approach of an academic. In his practice, Rogier has a particular focus on international patent matters, both transactions and litigation. His clients include a multinational corporation that specializes in digital entertainment products, a successful European footwear manufacturer, international pharmaceutical companies and a leading wireless handset company.
Rogier still lectures regularly, in particular on the enforcement of IP rights. He is co-author of the upcoming Dutch handbook on IP enforcement and is also a contributor to the IP loose-leaf handbook.
