Inspicos earns top rankings across international surveys
We are honoured and humbled to announce that for the fourteenth consecutive year Managing Intellectual Property has ranked Inspicos in Tier 1 amoung patent prosecution firms in Denmark. Five of Inspicos’ attorneys have been acclaimed as “IP Stars” by MIP.
Additionally Inspicos has again this year been listed by Financial Times as one of Europe’s 160 leading patent law firms. FT’s survey ranks Inspicos as a recommended or frequently recommended firm in the fields mechanics, chemistry and pharmaceuticals, electrical engineering and biotechnology and food.
Inspicos has likewise been top ranked by IAM Patent 1000
“On everything from drafting to worldwide filing, Inspicos “bridges the gap between patent attorneys, R&D engineers and IP professionals”, preparing iron-clad applications while also building up robust defence and business strategies for clients. On the physics and computer science side of the practice, Jakob Pade Frederiksen, Jan Simonsen, Peter Hertling, Steen Madsen and Christa Larsen Theil have enjoyed a red-letter year. “Second to none among Danish patent attorneys”, Pade Frederiksen is intimately familiar with the workings of the EPO and “handles oral proceedings very skilfully. He has a broad and deep understanding of technology and IP litigation, both within and outside of Denmark, which means he always finds new and fruitful angles for clients. Jakob is kind, funny and completely focused on what is best for the companies he assists”. Highly motivated and full of energy, Simonsen is a great match for creative start-ups. Hertling “readily makes himself available and takes the time to talk through any issues that may arise. He is detail oriented and always comes up with creative solutions to help us meet our goals”. Making his debut in the IAM Patent 1000, Madsen has a unique background in the power electronics sector and is a prime pick for mandates from the country’s burgeoning renewable energy sector. Another newcomer to the guide, Larsen Theil “gets pen to paper really quickly and drafts applications that are pretty much perfect straight off the bat. She has great technical capabilities, works quickly without compromising on quality and has the creativity to make patents as strong as possible”. On the biotechnology and chemistry front, meanwhile, Ulla Klinge, Peter Koefoed, Anna Lövqvist and Pia Marianne Stahr are making waves. An authority on pharmaceuticals of some three decades’ standing, Klinge recently enhanced her practice by obtaining a law doctorate focused on SPC eligibility. In the field of medical technology, Koefoed takes “an innovative approach to patent strategy. He provides excellent services, executes instructions quickly and has an incredibly high understanding of new inventions”. Lövqvist and Stahr are two further new names in the guide who attract effusive praise. “Experienced and detail oriented”, Lövqvist effortlessly teases out the idiosyncrasies of EPO prosecution, but her expertise goes far beyond that: “Her technical knowledge and ability to fully analyze prior art documents ensure that she produces the best possible arguments.” “You can fully count on Pia to provide advice in urgent situations quickly and thoroughly. She also consistently improves her knowledge of US patent law and is always open to new ideas and jurisdictional considerations before making a decision.”
