Bronze - Individuals: litigation

“At the very top of the field for life sciences litigation and patent litigation, more generally, Bech-Bruun’s IP team has rightfully earned its impressive reputation.” There is no shortage of high-profile work here, and recent highlights include acting for Edwards Life Sciences in preliminary injunction proceedings and Samsung Bioepis in its biosimilar battle against Fresenius Kabi. Taking the lead on both, “Klaus Ewald Madsen is the go-to for big-ticket disputes and one the best litigators in the country. He is brilliant at distilling down a complex case, quickly gets to the key strategic points and find the core commercial issues for his clients. Klaus is super experienced, hard-working, extremely intelligent and has a remarkable understanding of technology, all of which makes him a pleasure to work with.” Lately, he has been partnering up with Johnny Petersen and Søren Chr. Søborg Andersen, who also receives rave reviews. “Johnny is super skilled, responsive, knowledgeable, and communicating with him is always easy and pleasant.” “Søren is incredibly astute and experienced when it comes to the life sciences and biosimilars, in particular. He has a keen eye for detail, finds the perfect information to support his case and is a very safe pair of hands for litigation in Denmark.” “Klaus, Johnny, Søren and the wider team bring their extensive experience to bear, provide excellent strategic input and manage all cases effectively. They really are team players and are not afraid to get stuck into the technical details of complex cases and demonstrate brilliant attention to detail and responsiveness throughout.” Further testament to the group’s strength is Martin Dræbye Gantzhorn’s recent representation of Chr. Hansen, a global bioscience company, in its widely publicised acquisition of German biotech company Jennewin Biotechnologie. The life sciences division head is highly sought after for complex and high-value cases, courtesy of his profound IP and regulatory law expertise. Seasoned litigator and deal maker, Dan Bjerg Geary brings an added dimension to the practice, with his considerable expertise in the renewable energy sector. “Dan is the first choice for IP work within this field”, enthuses one patron. “He consistently delivers sophisticated legal advice, has outstanding availability and attentiveness, and showcases profound insight into the industry and truly understands his clients’ businesses.” Recently moving over from Plesner, “Jeppe Brinck-Jensen “is the number one choice for complex IP disputes. He is an extraordinarily talented and highly experienced litigator who gets right to the point and is very skilled at nailing the legal arguments behind complex technologies”.
