Our mission is to help our clients make the most of their Intellectual Property rights. Kirkpatrick’s multidisciplinary team provides intellectual property services in a continuously evolving economic and business environment.



We help you identify the best strategy in order for your development to benefit from IP. We handle the registration processes for obtaining worldwide IP protection.


We help prevent violations of your rights, defend you against infringing market players and represent you in dealings with IP Authorities.

Economic optimization

Your IP is an important asset. We help you to determine how to make the most of your rights by performing economic audits and drafting licence or exploitation agreements.


  • Expertise: Our experienced attorneys and paralegals are always aiming for excellence and are not afraid of coming up with inventive and yet efficient solutions.
  • Tailor-made: Every client is unique. Our services are therefore customized to each client’s needs and preferences.
  • Proactivity: Fully understanding the client’s projects, shared reflections with the client and anticipating potential obstacles: that’s what makes us more than a simple subcontractor.
  • International: In more than 165 years, we have built up a steady network of top-tier partners across the world, which enables us to be effective in most foreign jurisdictions.


Quality is more than words!

In 2004, Kirkpatrick was the first IP consultancy firm in Belgium to receive the ISO 9001 Quality Certification. This certification covers all of our activities: patents, supplementary certificates, trademarks, designs, copyrights, domain names and all of our related legal, audit and strategic services. The selection and evaluation of our local agents and foreign associates are assessed on the basis of precise procedures in accordance with the ISO 9001 requirements.

Our activities and internal processes continuously undergo external audits.

With this certificate, we commit to constant improvement and to providing our clients with the best service.



We are constantly looking for legal, scientific, technical and administrative profiles to strengthen our team. In addition to the above, Kirkpatrick also offers challenging opportunities in a pleasant and dynamic working environment. You get to work closely together with innovative organizations and leading brand owners of all sizes.

If you’re a team player, dynamic, business-minded and would like to become part of our team, we warmly invite you to submit your CV.


Your feedback is important for us. We would be happy to receive your opinions, suggestions or complaints regarding our services.
