According to Harrity LLP listing 2019’s Top Patent Firms, Laine IP Oy (formerly Seppo Laine Oy) secured eighty (80) U.S. Utility Patents for its clients in 2019, which ranked #1 in Finland and #1 in the Nordic region.
The listing includes law firms having secured 50 or more U.S. utility patents in 2019.
Laine IP Oy’s U.S. Team consists of Matthew Swanson (Mechanical, Electronics), Toimi Teelahti (Electronics, Computer-related Technologies), Mark W. Scott (Chemistry, Materials, Biotechnology), and Leena Marquis (Chemistry).
With all members of the group in its Helsinki office, Laine IP’s U.S. Team can seamlessly collaborate with you and your European/Finnish Patent Counsel to fully optimize global prosecution strategy, and ensure smooth, efficient, and effective U.S. prosecution.
In particular, the presence of Laine IP Oy’s U.S. Team within Finland continues to produce effective U.S. prosecution (as demonstrated by 2019’s results) due to the availability of all parties for discussion and Examiner Interviews within the same/similar time zone, the elimination of additional layers of communication with counsel based in the U.S., increased cost control, and increased responsibility for U.S. prosecution.
Please contact a member of Laine IP Oy’s U.S. Team to discuss how we can also optimize your U.S. prosecution from the Nordic region in 2020.
