Legal 500 2013 comments: "Janson has significantly strengthened its IP expertise by recruiting Hans Dhondt from Loyens & Loeff in July 2012 and counsel Bruno de Vuyst from Marx, Van Ranst, Vermeersch & Partners in September 2012. This experienced pair has brought in a number of new clients.

"Chambers 2013 reports that the "exceptional" Hans Dhondt is building the IP practice at Janson, having recently moved from Loyens & Loeff. One source notes: "He is highly responsive, with an excellent grasp of commercial issues and crisp communication skills." 

Chambers 2014 states: "Hans Dhondt comes highly recommended by clients, who report that 'he is down to earth, conscious of deadlines and keeps things simple. I also appreciate that he is hands-on and sticks to the point.' In addition to his broad IP practice he also sits as an arbitrator in domain name disputes."

Chambers 2017 states : “Hans Dhondt possesses nearly two decades of experience advising on trade mark, copyright and design litigation. Core sectors of expertise include medical devices, automotive and cosmetics.”
