The support package that Synch provides to its patrons is extremely well rounded; the innovative and dynamic outfit looks to partner up with the businesses it serves, offering strategic counselling from the very early stages of ideation, and protecting market positions through robust enforcement and lucrative licensing deals. It is a favourite among those in the high-tech and software industries, but life sciences instructions have been coming in thick and fast lately too. For example, Mathilda Nordmark, who is highly reputed for her commerciality and excellent advocacy, recently took the lead on representing Krka, one of the world’s leading generic pharmaceutical companies, in an invalidity action against Merck Sharp & Dohme’s supplementary protection certificate (SPC). When it comes to high-value deals and IP-rich deals, Sara Sparring and Johan Tydén have it covered. A star in the life sciences, Sparring has been busy assisting Rare Thyroid Therapeutics International with various commercial agreements with research institutes in the United Kingdom and the United States, and another one of her highlights includes negotiating a multi-million euro licence agreement on behalf of Lipidor. The telecommunications industry is one of Tydén’s strong suits, and as the former head of legal services at Ericsson, he is an absolute authority on thesubject.
