Full service within IP gives top ranking

May 21, 2021

Vinge's IP team has been ranked in the top band by the international guide IP Stars in two areas; Trade mark contentious and Trade mark prosecution - law firms.

IP Stars writes: Vinge's IP Team has a leading role in the most important matters in the market: Vinge’s work highlights this year once again showcase a broad range of work including trademark, patent and copyright disputes, and IP portfolio management. Many of the matters have involved extensive cross-border coordination challenges. Several of the matters that Vinge’s IP specialists were involved with this year were among the highest-profile, most innovative pieces of work in the market.

“We strongly believe in the benefits of high quality and full service in the IP area. The ability to handle other areas of the law affecting brands and other IP means that Vinge, as a leading full-service firm, has a broader offering than many other highly ranked competitors in IP. It confers added value to be able to follow the client over time and provide guidance in relation to everything from strategy and protection to disputes and contracts. We see the ranking as proof that we are on the right track in the development of our team and our services”, says Anette Henrysson, Head of IP Prosecution.

IP Stars is published by Managing IP. The ranking is renewed annually.
