Interview with Eszter Kurtan

What did you do before you joined us?

Since 2011, I have been working with the intellectual property teams of market leading Swedish companies such as Tetra Pak, Thule and SSAB. Prior to moving to Sweden I was legal counsel and staff lawyer in Hungary.

What did you know about Valea before you joined us?

I had been in contact with Valea during all of my in-house positions as my employers were Valea clients. My impression was that Valea is a highly professional and modern IP firm.

What are your main duties?

Trademark applications, oppositions, infringement, online brand protection, domain name related IP issues.

What is your driving force within your work?

After my experience in industry, I was thrilled by the opportunity to learn the very essence of IP law as a consultant. I knew that the Malmö team would be - both professionally and personally - great to work with.
