Our IP team has once again achieved excellent rankings in the WTR 1000 results published by the World Trademark Review. We were ranked in the Silver category in Enforcement and litigation as well as Prosecution and strategy. Our expertise is described in the publication as follows:
“A powerful force on the international trademark scene, Eversheds Sutherland executes all IP instructions with finesse, particularly capitalising on its expansive global reach to handle cross-border mandates with ease and sophistication. The Finnish contingent is acclaimed for its pragmatic approach and record of success before the courts and Finnish PRH, thanks to assured and poised litigators Petteri Häkkänen – tipped as “the trademark king” – and Kati Rantala, who boasts a superb track record in landmark cases. The dynamic duo are most at home when handling complex infringements and significant disputes, but are equally proficient in trademark prosecution, recently assisting international company Raisio in updating the image of its famous ELOVENA brand, which had been on the market for 95 years. Senior associate Lassi Lepistö bolsters the team, demonstrating talent across the board, but surpasses expectations in his handling of anti-counterfeit matters and stringent customs surveillance.”
Partner Petteri Häkkänen was again ranked in the best Gold category in the publication and Specialist Counsel Kati Rantala and Senior Associate Lassi Lepistö were ranked in the Bronze category.
