Berggren has again been recognized in the WTR 1000 survey which each year evaluates the world's leading trademark professionals. The firm is particularly pleased to announce that Berggren won the Gold Award for Prosecution and Strategy and the Bronze Award for Enforcement and Litigation.
The survey notes in particular that "Berggren has longstanding expertise in trademark protection and enforcement and answers all questions with a business-oriented approach. Boasting the largest trademark team in Finland with professionals who can truly do it all, the team is full to the brim of talent, dedication and prestige. The outfit shines when it comes to trademark prosecution and strategic design, and is a trusted partner to brand owners looking for expert management of trademark portfolios."
The survey specifically recognized Paula Sailas, Hannu Halmetoja and Milla Lehtoranta noting that they all display "a robust knowledge of IP law and use this to maximise the value of clients’ intellectual assets by dispensing high-quality service and support at every stage of the trademark lifecycle.” WTR 1000 also recognizes Jukka Palm and newcomer Jenni Ihalainen in the 2023 survey. According to the survey “Jukka Palm is responsible for creating savvy strategies to ensure domestic and global protection of challenging portfolios, while Ihalainen draws on her nuanced understanding of trademark procedures from her time working as a judge at the Market Court to “adeptly manage very large trademark portfolios with quick turn-around times and a genuine interest in clients’ business needs”.
In the enforcement and litigation category, the WTR survey highlighted that “recent hire Matti Nousiainen joins his team in the rankings this year. He brings a wealth of dispute resolution experience to the table and is well known for securing the best possible outcomes for his clients. Another essential contact for the address book is skillful negotiator Kaisa Fahllund, who draws on her experience in information and communications technology procurement to devise creative solutions grounded in business practicalities.”
"According to Milla Lehtoranta Lawyer and Head of Berggren’s Trademark and Design Department “we are delighted and honored to hear that our experienced trademark and dispute resolution team has been recognized in the WTR 1000 for 2023. We wish to thank all our client for this honor.
