European Trademark Attorney
Maria-Gemma gained initial experience in practising trademark law at Cartils Branding & Packaging Design, the family firm founded by her parents. She started out as a Legal Assistant with Cartils while studying law at Leiden University, during which time she was involved with issues at the interface of law and marketing, where theory and practice coincide. Maria-Gemma is still using the experience she gained with Cartils on a daily basis when advising her international clients.
Maria-Gemma joined Chiever in mid-2011 after several years as a trademark attorney and a further brief stint at Cartils. She is a joint-shareholder of the company and a member of the management team. Maria-Gemma’s responsibilities include the organisation of primary processes within Chiever.
