Valea highly recommended in IAM´s Patent 1000 Ranking


The ranking from Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) IAM Patent 1000 has now been released and we are delighted to see five of our colleagues among the ranked individuals. Congratulations to Andrew Hammond, Anette Romare and Marcus Gentzel for maintaining your ranking and congratulations to Thomas Ernby and Linda Egeröd Sidot for entering the ranking! We are also glad that our LifeTech and Chemistry Teamleader Malin Boström is mentioned for her excellent work!

We are also pleased that we have maintained our ranking as “highly recommended firm within the section Patent prosecution”. The section about Sweden reads: Sweden has a lengthy tradition of promoting innovation and supporting entrepreneurship; as a result, the country regularly ranks highly in global innovation indices and is one of the top filers at the EPO. 

We are very glad to have received the following excellent review:

“Valea’s patent attorneys have mastered all patentable technical areas and have everything covered, from filing and prior art searches to due diligence work, oppositions and litigation support. CEO Andrew Hammond has played a major role in driving the firm’s success and is a widely respected member of the IP community. “Exceptionally skilled at oppositions and oral proceedings”, he recently represented Primozone Production before the PRV along with Anette Romare, who “consistently shows high personal engagement and truly fights to defend her clients. She is technically brilliant and creatively identifies new patentable subject matter as well as good lines of argumentation in proceedings. Anette has a pragmatic approach and delivers high-quality work quickly and cost effectively”. In the mechanical field, Thomas ErnbyLinda Egeröd Sidot and Marcus Gentzel play the adviser role to perfection. Ernby’s passion for innovation takes him right to the heart of the automotive and energy industries. Egeröd Sidot thrives in total strategic support roles; in one recent highlight, she successfully represented Swedish Match North Europe in opposition proceedings. “Great at understanding complex inventions”, Gentzel is “attentive to details, finds solutions in tricky situations and gives excellent advice”. Recently moving over from Groth & Co to head up Valea’s life-tech and chemistry team, Malin Boström builds commercially valuable portfolios within the lifesciences.”
