The renowned ranking institute IAM Patent 1000 has just published this year’s guide to the world’s leading patent professionals, and once again, Plougmann Vingtoft is listed among the best. Likewise, nine of Plougmann Vingtoft’s experts receive special recognition.
The IAM Patent 1000 patent guide is considered one of the most significant lists of leading experts within the field of IP. The guide is based on a comprehensive study that extends over a long period and among others things includes in-depth interviews with various specialists and professionals from around the world.
Once again, Plougmann Vingtoft has achieved a ranking in the ‘gold’ category for ‘patent prosecution’ and is described as a very well-organized company that serves as an extension when it comes to both sensitive and strategic IP discussions. We are both very honored to receive such praise.
Great recognition of nine individual experts
Each year, IAM Patent 1000 also highlights individual experts in their respective fields, and again this year, nine of Plougmann Vingtoft’s patent practitioners are recognized as ‘recommending individuals’. IAM Patent 1000 expresses the following remarks about the nine experts:
Heading up the opposition and litigation unit, Kim Wagner knows everything there is to know about opposition proceedings and has a flawless track record at the EPO. He is counsel of choice to the likes of Nestlé, for whom he has brought home one win after another.IAM Patent 1000
An authority in the food and agriculture sectors, and a trained chemist, Katja Sørensen eagerly shares and disseminates her knowledge on all the practicalities of preparing an application, which is extremely valuable to small companies. Her technical input makes inventions stand out sharper, and her informal personality, efficient approach and willingness to give proper feedback make a difference.
As a named co-inventor on several patents, Jakob Schwalbe Lohmann relates to innovators and entrepreneurs, and guides them through the patenting process with ease. He has recently been devising patent strategies for Blue Cell Therapeutics (…)
Jan Mondrup Pedersen is phenomenal when it comes to biotechnology matters; he is technically brilliant, gets to grips with complex inventions quickly and has a profound knowledge of EPO case law.
For Statens Serum Institute, Christian Christiansen has been busy beefing up its patent portfolio on a global scale and is a discerning choice for those looking to prosecute SPCs in the pharmaceutical and agricultural fields.
Devising long-term and large-scale strategies comes naturally to Per Jørgen Nygreen, whose previous positions at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in Belgium and at the Technical University of Denmark inform his business-savvy advice.
Peter Sørensen is a skilled practitioner and tremendous adviser, whose insights into his clients’ business processes and key research areas ensure that his guidance really aligns with their industry and company objectives.
Electrical engineer Michael Friis Sørensen is the resident acoustics guru. He has carved out a niche in audio processing and communications systems where he produces flawless patent applications.
Senior patent attorney Claus Elmeros acquits himself with distinction when evaluating patentability and, as a testament to his technical prowess, he regularly serves as a court-appointed expert, and also holds post as a technical judge at the Maritime and Commercial High Court as well as the Western and Eastern High Courts.
Congratulations to all the recommended experts.
