We are delighted to announce that we have once again received the title of Patent Litigation Firm of the Year (Finland) at the Global IP Awards 2022 organised by the World Trademark Review and Intellectual Asset Management. This award is a recognition of our IP team’s hard work on some of the largest pharmaceutical IP cases in recent years that could have EU-wide implications for the interpretation of EU law.
The two publications behind this award call us a repository of trust for many A-list generic pharmaceutical companies and industry heavyweights in general. A peer is quoted by the publications as praising our IP team leader, Partner Ben Rapinoja as one of Finland’s major litigators and Partner Lasse Laaksonen as a true professional, excellent negotiator, and an even better litigator.
The Global IP Awards recognise law and attorney firm excellence in the fields of trademark and patent work and reflect the outstanding achievements of IP law and attorney firms in litigation, prosecution, and transactional work in 2021.
The World Trademark Review (WTR) is the only standalone publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and it identifies the leading players in 70 key jurisdictions globally. Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) is a unique publication that focuses on the many ways in which intellectual property can be used to create corporate value.
