With 370-plus specialists operating out of 20 offices across eight countries, including China and Switzerland, AWA is an absolute powerhouse on the IP landscape and is well equipped to handle any brief that comes its way. Its attorneys are diligent, thorough and, most importantly, super easy to talk to, which combined with their hyper-focused industry approach has earned them a loyal following among those in the mechanics, life sciences and high-tech sectors. Robust leadership is supplied in abundance by Sidsel Hauge, “one of the sharpest minds in Denmark”. “She is strategic, knowledgeable and does her utmost to ensure that her clients feel happy and confident – so much so that they completely let her take over the reins on their pan-European projects! Simply put, Sidsel is the absolute best and a real pleasure to work with.” Industry heavyweights in the mechanics arena take comfort in the advice provided by Mikkel Roed Trier, Eva Carlsson, and Vibeke Warberg Rohde. “Highly skilled and a tremendously valuable asset in high-speed litigation, Mikkel is amazing at explaining the technical ins and outs to those that have little, or no, knowledge of the industry. He is so impressive, and I would not hesitate to instruct him again.” “Eva is an excellent patent attorney and her vast experience in international litigation distinguishes her from others in her field. She excels in terms of skill, timeliness and client focus, and her advice is always to the point, on both a strategic and material level.” Warberg Rohde acquits herself with distinction before the European Patent Office (EPO) and has an excellent understanding of international patenting processes, particularly those in China. A discerning choice for electronics briefs, Kim Garsdal Nielsen leverages the knowledge he gained as a search examiner at the EPO to effortlessly see applications through to grant. In the life sciences and pharmaceutical industry Helle Friis Svenstrup and Michael Bech Sommer are tough to beat. Prosecuting supplementary protection certificates (SPCs), managing global portfolios and devising worldwide IP strategies are all within Friis Svenstrup’s wheelhouse, while “Bech Sommer impresses with his strong science background and ability to build on and enhance patent applications. He is highly skilled, dedicated and tremendously helpful at every turn. He proactively suggests new initiatives and projects that add great value to our overall business, which coupled with his ability to work well with in-house teams, makes him stand out on the market.” In the high-tech realm, Lasse Henze and Joacim Lydén are also recipients of high praise. “In complex oral proceedings, Lasse is able to secure positive outcomes by providing arguments in an articulate and convincing manner, but also with his politeness and ability to understand and relate to the Examiner and their concerns.” “The quality of work produced by Joacim is always outstanding and he proves to be an instrumental adviser in every circumstance. One way that Joacim stands out is that he understands that intellectual property is a significant cost, especially to smaller companies, and he always sees what a client really needs, tailors his advice and finds innovative solutions that fit their cost structure. His dual understanding of EU and US systems is another highlight, and makes him a valued partner for foreign filings.”
