Gold - Firms: litigation and transactions
BAHR boasts “a strong group that provides high-quality advice and staunch representation in complex patent litigation, particularly when it comes to originators in the pharmaceutical industry”. On deck is “one of the most knowledgeable attorneys at law in the country, Are Stenvik. He is straightforward, technically savvy, and whether he is on your side or not, he is a pleasure to work with”. He teamed up with IAM Patent 1000 newcomer Eirik Basmo Ellingsen to represent Neurim Pharmaceuticals in a patent validity case. Outside of the pharmaceutical space, Gunnar Sørlie has been defending Vetco Gray Scandinavia in a patent infringement case regarding subsea scale squeezing – a case that was eagerly watched by those in the industry and raised important questions regarding the scope of protection.
