In the last 20 years the Nordic region has emerged as a technological powerhouse.
- Sweden has, in particular, been named as one of the most innovative countries on earth with Stockholm having more unicorns per head of population than any other city in the world.
- Following the acquisition of Swedish firm, IPQ, Rouse entered the Nordic region in July 2019 to advise clients in the region and to provide routes to the markets of China and South East Asia.
Our Sweden office has a well-established Consultancy practice in Sweden, working with our global Consultancy teams.
Is your business structured to encourage innovation and foster creativity? In order for a company to thrive all parts of the business need to work harmoniously and you need to understand how valuable IP is created, protected and exploited. We can help with the identification and valuation of your intangible assets to increase profitability and accelerate your growth but also recognise that an organisation is influenced by itself, but also its environment to support the competitive advantage.
Patent practice in Sweden largely follows the European patent practice and case law as implemented by Swedish law. Swedish companies are export oriented and operate in all parts of the world. This has entailed an international experience and approach to IP in business as well as within the European- and Swedish Patent Office. Swedish patent applications may be prosecuted in English as well as in Swedish up to grant.
Our patent team take the time to get to know you and your business to understand your commercial aims and objectives and ensure your patent portfolio will help you achieve them - recognising too the part your stakeholders play in the innovation environment. Should it be necessary we have experts in dispute resolution and arbitration and will work with our colleagues in our other offices if infringers are overseas.
