IAM Patent 1000’s recommendations in summary

Full-service Vinge practises at the vanguard of the Swedish patent litigation scene, and its crew of exceptionally strong advocates can regularly be found on some of the country’s most precedent-setting cases and high-value deals.

One such practitioner is Håkan Borgenhäll, “a brilliant litigator and the lawyer you need by your side in the toughest of cases. He is extremely skilled, very meticulous and handles an impressively large caseload with ease.”

Working alongside him is newly elected partner Malin Malm Waerme, “an absolute star from both a legal and technical perspective. She possesses extensive experience within the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, and is really lovely to work with.”

On the transactions front, Stojan Arnerstål has asset commercialisation down to a fine art. He recently assisted Expedition Growth Capital in connection with Storykit’s investment round of $10 million, which was led by the London-based growth equityfund.

Concerning the ranking

The ranking is based on client surveys, statements by counterparties and reviews of submissions and reference interviews where IAM assesses which lawyers provide the highest quality advice.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
