About us

We focus 100 percent on creating business opportunities for our clients. And just like our clients themselves, we are active in the global marketplace.

Intellectual property is a fantastic means of creating business opportunities – provided it is properly managed. AWA clients know this and that's why they regard intellectual property law as a strategic asset in their ambition to attain a position as leaders in their respective markets.

Founded in 1897, we bring 120 years of experience to our clients. With 165 IP attorneys and almost 300 employees at 16 offices in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and China, we are a premier IP firm with some of the most successful companies in the world choosing us as their strategic partner.

We operate by three core values: courage, openness, and passion. We dare to be different, make tough choices and blaze new trails. Our openness to new perspectives means great ideas will not be passed by – and with our razor-sharp specialist skills in law and technology focused solely on creating business opportunities for our clients, our team is nothing if not ambitious. We are forever finding new ways to make our clients more successful.
