“Kransell & Wennborg has a stellar reputation in Sweden and is a firm you can rely on for end-to-end services. It is customer focused, large enough to handle big clients but small enough to maintain familiarity, and every interaction is seamless, thanks to the team’s commitment and experience. They go above and beyond expectations. No other practice compares.” Coming in on a wave of praise, Anders Wirén is lauded for his “extraordinary ability to discern what is patentable and what isn’t, even in highly challenging circumstances where there might be obstacles”. “Patrons are impressed by his expertise as well as his positive and optimistic attitude.” “One of the best attorneys in the country, Daniel Fritsche is the go-to guy for complex mandates. He excels at drafting claims that effectively capture the essence of the client’s inventions.” Demonstrating great commercial judgement, Magnus Nilsson provides customers with excellent counsel specifically in the electronics and AI arena. Recently, he successfully represented Dynasafe International Ab in an opposition appeal before the EPO. Oscar Sewerin utilises his mechanical expertise to his clientele’s advantage and is appointed as technical expert before the Swedish Patent and Market Court – further demonstrating his astute technical knowledge. “Roland Mezöfi delivers cost-efficient, high-quality work that is tailored to the client’s needs, thanks to his brilliant business acumen”; while Johan Wennborg draws on his experience as an examiner at the EPO and his time in-house at Swedish multinational ABB to help patrons. He is a trustworthy partner for anyone with interests in the mechanical industry, and has recently been aiding electro-mechanical company ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions in opposition proceedings. “Martin Holmberg-Schwindt translates complex information into easy-to-understand guidance. He handles applications with ease and is entrusted with the ensuing portfolio work – overseeing everything with a birds-eye view.” “Pragmatic and proactive, he brings peace of mind to inventors.” SMEs and multinationals alike flock to Magnus Nordin for advice on everything from strategic filing and infringement issues to freedom-to-operate analyses. He is particularly sought out by those in the computer-implemented inventions space. Of Karin Hillsten, one referee says it all: “When someone is knowledgeable, you know you have a great match, but when that person also is passionate, business savvy and thorough in all that they do, you know that you have something even better. Karin is all of the above and more.” This year Linda Egeröd Sidot, Jakob Wallin and Johan Piscator join their colleagues in the guide. Mechanical and chemical engineer Egeröd Sidot recently joined forces with Hillsten to defend Mölnlycke Health Care AB in protecting an important product in the company’s wound-care line. “Jakob is dedicated, technically sound and knows just what details to add to elevate a patent’s value.” He is regularly called upon by the Oslo District Court, and recently served as an expert co-judge on an infringement case regarding earth drilling. “Johan is a strategic yet practical thinker, who demonstrates extensive IP knowledge and a high level of technical comprehension. His transparency regarding timelines and cost estimations is also highly appreciated.”
