Clara De Schryver

European Trademark & Design Attorney, IP Lawyer

CALYSTA’s structure and way of working allows a debate in which we can exchange views and listen to each other’s input. One of the reasons why I joined CALYSTA is because sharing and listening to each other’s opinions and points of view on a wide variety of different topics is important to me, both personally and professionally. Listen, understand and deliver.

Listening is key to have effective communication. My job as an IP attorney is to listen to the clients’ requests or problems, to ask the right questions, to understand their needs and to propose solutions and give recommendations.

I believe that for important life choices one must listen to their “gut” or instinct. I can argue the pros and cons of any situation (I am an attorney after all) but I am prepared to make a leap of faith and listen to my intuition.
