IAM Patent 1000 recognizes Plougmann Vingtoft’s experts

IAM Patent 1000 has just published this year’s guide to the world’s leading experts within intellectual property rights and 10 of Plougmann Vingtoft’s patent practitioners are acknowledged for their expertise. Additionally, Plougmann Vingtoft once again achieves a top ranking among the very best IP consultancies.

Every year, the ranking magazines publish their lists of the world’s leading IP consultancies and IP practitioners and the IAM Patent 1000 guide is considered one of the most significant lists of leading experts within the field of IP. The guide is based on extensive research and includes, among other things, in-depth interviews with various specialists and professionals as well as clients from all over the world.

In 2023, Plougmann Vingtoft maintains its ‘gold’ ranking for prosecution and 10 experts receives the recognition of being either ‘highly recommended’ or ‘recommended’ individuals. IAM Patent 1000 expresses the following about the 10 experts:

Electrical expert Michael Friis Sørensen is easy to collaborate with. He reacts promptly and always offers pragmatic follow-ups. He is renowned for his ability to take the input from clients’ engineering departments and formulate it into a patent, while simultaneously creating a set of claims that best protect their IP rights.

Mechanics ace Claus Elmeros draws on a storied IP career to provide patrons with early-stage evaluations and assistance throughout the patent cycle. A testament to his capabilities, he is not only called upon as an expert witness but also serves as a technical judge at the Maritime and Commercial High Court as well as the Western and Eastern High Courts in Denmark.

Technology and software expert Per Jørgen Nygreen is a prime choice for those in the fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, software and mechanics sectors. Combining an academic background in the commercial sector and extensive experience working with fluid dynamics, Nygreen offers bespoke strategies that account for complex technical details and the patron’s business needs.

Head of opposition and litigation, Kim Wagner is easy to work with, creative and pugnacious in the best way possible. Highly experienced, he adapts and adjusts to the requirements of each client, while ensuring that realistic expectations have been set.”

Often called upon by those in the pharmaceuticals and agriculture sector, Christian Christiansen offers expertise in the identification of inventions, managing global patent portfolios and filing SPCs. A familiar face before the Opposition Division and the Boards of Appeal at the EPO, no case is too complex for this master strategist.

Jakob Schwalbe Lohmann remains up to speed with trends and case law within the field. His work in early-stage evaluations and international portfolio management has attracted an array of names from globe-spanning companies to universities and hospitals. He has also carved a niche for himself among those in the plants and biological processing industries seeking patentability advice.

Katja Sørensen is highly experienced in the fields of food, agriculture and chemistry. With a keen business understanding, she regularly assists local and international patrons with IP strategy and the best way to capitalise on and commercialise their IP rights.

SPC filing and prosecution head Jan Mondrup Pedersen is a trusted practitioner for universities, and is regularly enlisted by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as those within the food and animal feed industry. Through his research, Pedersen has gained key insight into various medical fields such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and diabetes.

Physicist Peter Sørensen identifies complex details and transforms them into successful strategies in oral proceedings before the DKPTO and the EPO. He is a safe bet for those in sectors related to mechanics, electronics, nanotechnology and computer-implemented inventions.

Making his debut in the guide this year is inorganic and materials chemistry expert Matteo Biancardo. Fluent Italian, English and Danish, and co-inventor on various patent applications, Biancardo is the partner of choice for those in the renewable energy, electrochromic, photochromic and nanoelectronics industries.

Congratulations to all the experts.
