The outfit is well-regarded for its strong technical insight and capabilities in portfolio management, especially within the local exports industry. A testament to its strength, six of its practitioners – Kari Simonsen, Kim Livgard, Dorte Lajer, Per Reiner, Endre Woldstad and Edmund André Høydahl – are ranked in the IAM Patent 1000 this year. “Kari is one of the best life science patent attorneys in Norway.” “She is proactive, responsive and has in-depth knowledge of EPO case law. “Her strategic mind and ability to explain complex technical issues in an easy-to-understand way makes her a vital asset to any litigation team”. “Kim provides exceptional expert assistance when it comes to both Norwegian and European patent law.” As one client emphasises: “Kim is our first choice because she is flexible, creative and easy to work with.” Chemical engineer and European patent attorney Lajer provides bespoke advice to a wide range of customers, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals. She handles everything from drafting and filing to freedom-to-operate analyses and validity assessments. Also on deck is dual-qualified Reiner, who puts patrons at ease. He is a go-to for those looking to protect their rights in Scandinavia, as well as the rest of Europe. Woldstad draws on his expertise within the electronic power industry to devise effective strategies, while Høydahl has carved a place for himself in virtually all matters involving life sciences.
