License agreements, patent portfolio evaluation and patent processes. Whatever size your company is, there are several occasions when legal advice is critical to secure business success. The long-standing partnership between Ström & Gulliksson and Advokatbyrån Gulliksson ensures fast and qualified advice.
Our clients are afforded a unique opportunity by our close collaboration with Advokatbyrån Gulliksson and access to IPR specialists. In patent disputes, it gives you an advantage to have chosen a patent firm with a network of qualified lawyers from the outset. Gulliksson’s lawyers are leading IPR specialists.
“Together we are highly successful when representing clients in national and international patent processes because we have direct access to lawyers with specialized expertise. We have assignments for both rapidly growing startups and established multinational companies in need of a strong team of both patent attorneys and lawyers,” says Erik Bolmsjö, Partner and European Patent Attorney.
Gulliksson offers qualified advice and services in business law and related fields of law with a special focus on intellectual property law and expertise in many industries. The main reason for the partnership in the eyes of the law firm is to be able to offer its own clients an outstanding range of services.
“We are neighbors and share some office space with the patent firm, which is unique and makes knowledge sharing easy and natural. “We complement each other’s services in a way that benefits our joint clients and fosters a transfer of expertise between our companies,” says Hans-Anders Odh, a Gulliksson partner specializing in IPR law.
It’s important to our clients that we can jointly offer every step in the IPR services chain, from IPR strategy, applications for protection, rights enforcement and commercialization to support in dispute resolution when needed. This serves as the core of our partnership. Patent infringement occurs in every industry and the share of infringements in life sciences and digital service patents is rising steadily. Although the firms are two separate companies, clients will gain access to a closely knit team in processes.
“Sometimes, the firms jointly litigate, both at the complaint departments of patent authorities and in national courts,” says Odh, who went on to give some examples of their close collaboration:
“For example, a client may want to develop a new product. That in turn may require a freedom-to-operate opinion. Any new product risks infringing on patent and/or IP rights. It’s natural for us to turn to Ström & Gulliksson’s patent consultants to put together a complete team for a project like that.”
