WTR 1000 2019 rankings published

World Trademark Review i.e. WTR 1000 2019 rankings have been published.  Eversheds Sutherland’s Finland office was commended in the following categories:

  • enforcement and litigation
  • prosecution and strategy

The expansion of Eversheds Sutherland to Russia has been noticed, and our IP practice in Finland is said to be “ready for anything”. Of our experts, Tuukka Airaksinen and Petteri Häkkänen were individually ranked in the top category (Gold):

“Eversheds Sutherland has one of the strongest IP practices in Finland” but is not resting on its laurels. The internationally minded firm has recently acquired offices in Moscow and Saint Petersburg to tend to trademark matters in Russia. The Finnish ensemble works together with subsidiary Heinonen & Co, which administers around 22,000 registrations; together they form a 30-strong team that is ready for anything. A former examiner at the EUIPO Tuukka Airaksinen applies his diligently cultivated skills to “manage large international portfolios with proficiency” and has emerged victorious from many branding skirmishes. Petteri Häkkänen loves to get stuck into complicated trademark infringement matters. Having authored several textbooks, he has an outstanding theoretical knowledge, which grounds his persuasive advocacy in court.”
