Kristin is a trademark paralegal with over 10 years of experience in the company. Before joining us, she gained her earliest experience working at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) as an administrative assistant. Her support work for the EUIPO departments dealing with trademark filings and opposition proceedings introduced her to the IP field, which she has not abandoned ever since. She also worked in the financial department, focusing on the regularization of payments.
She has now broadened her areas of expertise in ZMP where she is the link between our clients and our lawyers, for different jurisdictions. Among her tasks as an IP paralegal, Kristin does filings, prosecution, renewals and recordals for both, trademarks and designs. She is also responsible for reporting to clients and responding to official actions. She further assists our legal department with invoicing and as a manager of the company’s files database and also has deep knowledge of some of our clients’ databases, such as Anaqua and GIPM. In this sense, she customizes our database according to our needs, designing workflows and different kinds of template reports. As a result, Kristin is the right person to train new employees in the Alicante office and she also coordinates with her peers in the Belgrade office.
As her experience grows, Kristin has continued her training in relevant IP matters and in 2022, she has successfully completed the EUIPO Trade Mark and Design Education Programme for Paralegals.
