She has experience of litigation before the Dutch Court (both first instance and appeal) and the UPC.

Hiske has a broad range of patent litigation experience, including (cross-border) preliminary injunctions, confidentiality issues, validity and infringement issues. She began her career at a Magic Circle law firm and has also spent time on secondment at a major tech company where she was responsible for coordinating their patent litigation in Europe.
