Annika Kilander started her IP career in private practice in the early 1990s and has since spent more than 10 years as an industry leader with the global IP department of GE Healthcare’s life sciences division. Apart from the general aspects of patent drafting and prosecution, Ms Kilander’s experience includes business-driven use of intellectual property, such as due diligence in acquisitions and before entry into collaborations; clearance of new patent introductions through freedom to operate; in and out-licensing of intellectual property; as well as third-party issues (eg, infringement analyses and validity assessments). Ms Kilander has also successfully and proactively been driving the new generation of intellectual property through joint efforts from market representatives and research and development, often with a clear monetisation in view.
