According to the IAM, Boco IP “has had another banner year: it has seen an uptick in EPO matters, particularly from international clients; moved over to a new case-management platform which allows its IP experts to spend more valuable face-to-face time with clients; and onboarded several new practitioners to an already deep bench.”  

As described by IAM, the firm’s Managing Director and Partner,  Karri Leskinen, is entrusted with ”the most complex and super technical matters . You can undoubtedly rely on him to deliver work of the highest quality and the cooperation is guaranteed to be smooth too.”  Jonna Sahlin “is appreciated by patrons for her ability to communicate clearly, explain complex technical arguments to judges in a way that is easy to understand, and provide commercially insightful analyses that are vital to those looking to mitigate risk”. Jaana Hämäläinen “really gets to grips with the technology behind an invention and looks to build a great rapport with inventors, and as a result she brings great value to the patents she drafts.”  

”For those looking to overcome seemingly insurmountable oppositions hurdles, Christian Westerholm is a wise choice, while industrial machinery expert Sini-Maaria Mikkilä is a big-picture thinker with a great eye for detail and a tremendous knowledge of patenting processes across multiple jurisdictions. As a former senior IP manager at Nokia, Marja-Liisa Autti has an intimate understanding of the telecommunications industry and knows the best way forward in research and development (R&D) settings.” 

Anu Keinänen is described to be “extremely diligent and insightful” who is ”exceptionally talented at drafting applications due to her ability to cooperate well with inventors, understand the invention at its core, and formulate claims precisely and clearly.” 

Commenting on the results, Managing Director and Partner, Karri Leskinen said, “We are more than delighted about the results. Sincere thanks to our clients for the reviews they gave to the IAM researchers, and especially our devoted personnel for all the work that we have done together over the years.”
