Here to tell your story

In a time when I was new to the patent business, my mentor painted me the mental picture that when we draft a patent application we are telling a story about the invention. Still today I find this metaphor both engaging and applicable; when reduced to practice, patent drafting, prosecution, opposition and infringement involves the exercise of precision in pleading the case of the patent -your story, within the terms of patent law.

In a sense, filing patent applications means launching your ideas on an endeavour. As your patent attorney I strive to see your ideas through the glasses of Proust only to provide them with sufficient technical details to overcome obstacles of prior art, and while formulating the sought patent protection with the conciseness of Tranströmmer, prior setting course towards that solid patent right discernible on the horizon.

By virtue of it’s inherent nature, working with intellectual property implies that each act performed in a case is unique and thus poses a challenge in it’s own right, and so also provides me with an opportunity to learn something novel. Having that said, regardless whether your business is decomposable toothbrushes or jet engines, I always find i my part of the story truly interesting and challenging.

Experience from industry

I have previous industrial experience mainly from the energy sector, including energy transformations, bio power and renewables, efficient energy utilisation, wind power, district heating, oil & gas, off-shore installations, industrial gas turbine development, power plant projection, power production and distribution.
