IAM Patent 1000

Eight individual experts receive great recognition

Each year, the IAM Patent 1000 also highlights individual experts in their respective fields, and this year eight of Plougmann Vingtoft’s patent practitioners are recognized as either ‘highly recommended’ or ‘recommended individuals’. IAM expresses the following about the eight experts:

Heading up the food, agriculture and chemistry team, “Katja Sørensen demonstrates professionalism and understanding. Seamlessly navigating complex patent application rules and deadlines, she provides just the right amount of information on patent status, avoiding overload or scarcity. To eliminate any ambiguity about the invention’s content in the application, Katja prepares detailed explanations for the patent attorney, based on a first opinion report.

Leading the SPC filing and prosecution team, Jan Mondrup Pedersen boasts proficiency across Danish, English, Swedish, Norwegian and German. Actively involved in opposition and appeal procedures at the EPO, he also offers robust litigation support and carries out freedom-to-operate (FTO) analyses.

Easy to work with, Matteo Biancardo brings a panoramic outlook on each case. Throughout each phase he presents clientele with all the opportunities, and provides transparent advice to help them make informed decisions. He is a practitioner of choice for those seeking to maximise the value of their rights.

Anette Hegner’s in-house and private practice experience, coupled with great business acumen, proves instrumental when formulating and implementing creative strategies. 

Operating out of Copenhagen, Per Jørgen Nygreen is a favoured choice among the fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and mechanics sectors. Proficient in Danish, English, Swedish and Norwegian, he utilises a great commercial mentality to devise strategies, carry out evaluations and draft patent applications.

From his base in Aarhus Peter Sørensen brings a wealth of experience in the field of mechanics and electronics. His patrons belong to wide range of sectors, from optics, to nanotechnology, to computer-implemented inventions. Particularly skilled in handling post-grant-related assignments, he handles FTO assessments as well as opposition matters.

By his side, electrical engineer Michael Friis Sørensen “streamlines fruitful collaborations with inventors and has built long-lasting relationships with them. Pragmatic and proactive, he effectively oversees the pre-screening, drafting and filing stages.”

On the molecular biology side, “Jakob Schwalbe Lohmann has proven to be valuable asset for new patent applications, FTO analyses, searches and opposition proceedings”.

Congratulations to all the recommended experts.
