A&O wins top lawyer from Nauta Dutilh

Allen & Overy (A&O) has poached one of the Netherlands’ most prominent intellectual property (IP) lawyers from top Dutch firm Nauta Dutilh.

In Amsterdam, the arrival of Sven Klos will continue the rapid expansion of the office since it opened in January, increasing the partner count to 34 out of a total of 160 fee-earners.

As a partner at Nauta Dutilh since 1996, Klos has concentrated largely on litigation in respect to patents, copyright, trademarks, advertising and media.

A&O’s Amsterdam senior partner Sietze Hepkema says: “Highly-regarded lawyers such as Sven are undoubtedly attracted to a firm that offers top-quality work at both domestic and international levels.”
