Ylva Skoglösa

Partner at aera

Ylva Skoglösa entered the patent profession in 1999, after finishing a PhD in neurobiology at the Biomedical Centre at Uppsala University. She has since specialised in strategic IP advice, lifecycle management and litigation, and the management of worldwide patent portfolios.

Dr Skoglösa is a sought-after external lecturer and IP adviser for multinational companies, universities and early-stage companies, particularly with regard to technology transfer. She is a member of aera’s management team and a board member, as well as part of aera’s preferred-partner programme team.

Dr Skoglösa has profound knowledge of the creation and use of intellectual property in the life sciences, including medicine, biotechnology and the food and feed industry. She has a solid understanding of the value of intellectual property as a business tool and has helped several companies through IP due diligence in successful private and public financing rounds. She has advised inventors and technology providers, as well as investors, in licensing negotiations and acquisitions.

Clients appreciate her pragmatic approach and extensive experience in handling cases before the EPO and other major and minor patent jurisdictions worldwide. They also value her commitment and dedication to their cause, as well as her ability to understand and communicate complicated technical and legal issues.

IAM says

Ylva Skoglösa’s ability to understand and effectively communicate complex technical and legal issues is key to her success before the EPO as well as the strength of her relationships. She listens to the commercial goals of her clients and advocates for them in lucrative licensing deals and technology transfers.
