Stimulating networks

A well-functioning network is important for most industries and this is particularly true of the IP industry. Both Valea and our employees are committed members of some of the most significant organisations and their related networks.

This involvement makes it easier to monitor developments in the industry and to meet, exchange experiences with and get to know colleagues at the global level as well.
Like the world of our clients, the world of intellectual property rights is largely global. Legislation and rights can differ greatly between different countries and we know when Valea has sufficient expertise and when we should turn matters over to local experts.

Over the years we have built up an international network of highly reputable specialists to whom we can entrust our clients' international matters. Through these networks and organisations, we can also safeguard our clients' interests in processes involving national legislation, for example.
