Companies seeking on-point IP advice and access to the vast commercial resources of an international firm should look no further than Eversheds subsidiary Heinonen, an outfit that assists companies in virtually any sector across the patent lifecycle. Zooming in on its non-contentious practice, Sampo Ylätalo, Juhani Kupiainen, Regina Pudas and Akseli Von Koch acquit themselves with distinction on all manner of prosecution instructions. Distinguished physicist Ylätalo has several stints at prestigious research institutions on his CV; he has a knack for translating ideas into well-drafted claims with a broad scope of protection. “Effective communicator” Kupiainen “makes the patenting process absolutely effortless” for clients such as listed power system producer Enedo Plc. Pudas – a veritable encyclopaedia of European patent law and chemistry ace – regularly assists pioneering entities such as Picosun, which developed the atomic layer deposition film coating method. For players in the fields of emerging digital technologies such as Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, Von Koch is a crucial business partner. He also has a keen strategic eye and has recently been helping local healthcare company Icare Finland to maintain its competitive edge. The ensemble’s contentious offering is anchored by Petteri Häkkänen. A brilliant legal mind and persuasive advocate, he always keeps clients’ commercial interests front and centre.
