February 18, 2021

Vinge receives the highest ranking in the World Trademark Review list of the year’s rankings. The firm obtains the Guide’s foremost ranking, which also highlights specific experts.

The WTR ranks both world-leading firms as well as specific experts who have excelled in the field of trademark law.  Vinge is awarded “The Top Firm in Sweden”, in which five individual nominations are also obtained:

“The top firm in Sweden”, Vinge has “a brilliant, reliable and well-connected team which acts on the most influential matters in the country”. The full-service powerhouse has everything going for it, including a bustling prosecution practice that serves a litany of heavyweights. Its non-contentious offering is led by Anette Henrysson, a perspicacious strategist who often appears before the EUIPO.

Both Pär Leander’s as well as Sofia Ljungblad’s individual efforts are mentioned, in addition to Håkan Borgenhäll who, together with Tobias Kempas, has advised the Swedish Olympic Games Committee:

Turning to litigation, Håkan Borgenhäll is an indomitable force in the courtroom and a significant player on the market. He recently represented the Swedish Olympic Committee on its Olympic rings and devised a successful model for the handling of parallel infringement cases, stopping 35 infringing counterparties in their tracks.

Richard Wessman is also highlighted, in an entry which focuses specifically on his academic background:  

A great asset to have on your side when things get difficult. His background as an esteemed professor and educator is a real strength and you can always count on him for dynamic and creative solutions in the trickiest of cases.

The WTR’s recommendations are based on interviews, as well as reviews of the quality, complexity and scope of the legal advice provided.
