IAM Patent 1000, – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners, 2019: Jakob Pade Frederiksen, who wins heaps of laurels as “perhaps the best mechanical IP attorney in Scandinavia”. “He is second to absolutely nobody in terms of patent attorneys. There is something about his approach to cases that is actually quite amazing. He’s calm and trustworthy – spectacular and in a league of his own.”
I am currently lead attorney in various parallel invalidity actions brought against one of our clients’ patents for ground-breaking inventions in the field of fibre composites for wind turbine blades. I am further involved in EPO oppositions and appeals against patents covering EpiPen® (an epinephrine autoinjector for the treatment of anaphylaxis), and I have recently provided expert testimony in litigation related to patents for transcatheter heart valve implants.
On a personal note
Spare time is family time – most often at the side line of a dancing arena or a soccer field. During my frequent business trips I unwind with running shoes on my feet or by listening to the music of Beethoven, Brahms or Mahler.
