A prime destination for major generic pharmaceutical companies and industry leaders generally, Borenius Attorneys is home to technology specialists and crack litigators who regularly prevail in commercially consequential cases. It has lately been representing Mylan in revocation, infringement and preliminary injunction proceedings against Gilead relating to the interpretation of the SPC Regulation – a matter that is being widely considered by several European courts. Another highlight is its work for Teva, which saw stalwart Ben Rapinoja team up with Dutch and German colleagues in cross-border litigation against InterMune, a biotechnology company acquired by Roche. “One of the most experienced and talented litigators in Finland, Ben comes out on top even when faced with formidable opponents.” Fellow contentious star Lasse Laaksonen also attracts warm plaudits from patrons: “He is practical and shrewd, but also a strong-minded fighter. Lasse has never let me down in the decade I have worked with him.” At the helm of the technology, media and telecommunications team, Samuli Simojoki brings impressive transactional capabilities to the mix; complex ICT licensing deals are a forte.
