International recognition for Boco IP’s patent team
IAM Patent 1000 has published its research results for 2018 and we are glad to announce, that Boco IP remains a recommended patent prosecution firm in Finland. Already earlier this year, Managing IP published its 2018 international IP stars research, where Boco IP maintained its tier 1 ranking as a recommended patent prosecution firm in Finland as well. Further, Boco IP’s trademark team and its professionals have been mentioned in World Trademark Review WTR 1000 2018 as a recommended trademark prosecution firm in Finland, and Boco IP also kept its MIP tier 2 ranking in trademark prosecution. Boco IP has been listed as a recommended patent and trademark firm in Finland in these three renowned international studies for several years.
The recently published IAM Patent 1000 states following on Boco IP:
“Well-known patent agency” Boco IP remains a “high-quality offering” after more than 90 years in the game. Its team of skilled patent attorneys is a powerful force in Finland and its streamlined processes and efficient infrastructure ensure standards never suffer. The troupe is a regular collaborator with the country’s attorneys at law, who value its impressive contribution in infringement proceedings.
The research points out several of Boco IP’s patent professionals: recommended individuals are European Patent Attorney Anu Keinänen, Managing Director and European Patent Attorney Karri Leskinen, European Patent Attorney Christian Westerholm and Chair of the Board and European Patent Attorney Annika Hakkila.
IAM Patent 1000 states following on them:
Among the many “technically gifted” professionals is “tremendous attorney” Anu Keinänen. “A specialist in hard-to-characterise physical phenomena, she skilfully manages the entire process of patenting an invention and is adroit in identifying the most patentable aspects of any technology.” Of her approach, one buyer enthuses: “Keinänen is a creative prosecutor who is available to advise on site where required. It is essential to recognise her incredible customer service.” IP strategist Karri Leskinen shares Keinänen’s customer-centric approach; “an excellent listener, he understands the needs of clients”. Delivering comprehensive freedom-to-operate (FTO) searches, “he raises the potential risks of FTO and takes steps to mitigate them. He demonstrates a command of the newest developments in Finnish intellectual property and takes time to communicate them to buyers”. Mechanical aficionado Christian Westerholm boasts a knack for patent filing and opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO). He showcases his dexterity as a sharp adviser in licensing negotiations too. Managing partner Annika Hakkila’s all-encompassing service reflects that of the team she leads. The chemical maven draws on 28 years of IP graft and time spent in-house.
