Jacques van Breda is Dutch and European patent attorney and Benelux and European trademark and design attorney. He studied electrical engineering at Delft University of Technology(1978) and Law at the University of Leiden (1984). Jacques serves as a deputy judge in the Appeal court in the Hague.

Jacques practices in a very diverse field of technologies with a focus on patenting mechanical, electronic and software-related inventions. Examples of his areas of expertise range from food processing technology to bicycle parts, and from computer tomography and mammography to sandwich-panels for airplanes. He regularly defends the interest of his clients in the courtroom, and frequently participates in oppositions and appeals at the European patent office, both in the Hague and in Munich with results that far outweigh the odds. Furthermore, Jacques advises clients on licensing and collaboration agreements.

Irma Scheltus studied chemistry at the University of Amsterdam and obtained her master’s degree in organo-metal chemistry. As a patent attorney, she has over 20 years of experience in the chemical industry where she has worked as a patent attorney in various chemical fields. In this context, she has gained experience in patent granting procedures in “non-standard” countries such as the Gulf States, Russia and some Asian countries.
Her varied experience has proven to be particularly valuable in writing patent applications, but also valuable in oppositions and generally in giving patent advice. Her practice is particularly focused on inventions in the field of chemical processes, materials and their use, such as polyolefins, catalysis, naphtha crackers, melamine, urea, resins and biomedical materials. She has experience in protecting the results of industrial and more fundamental research. Clients appreciate her approach to the international patent environment and her strategic advice.
Ferdinand Leeger graduated cum laude as a chemical technologist from Eindhoven University of Technology.

Ferdinand gained extensive experience with regard to chemical plant design, lithography, catalysis and multivariate data analysis. Before joining Los & Stigter he worked as a patent attorney on a wide range of mechanical, electrical and physical inventions. His knowledge and experience therefore extends far beyond his chemical background.
