Awapatent as a group is recommended in the
  • international ranking (consisting of 19 IP firms in total):
    Coordinating operations from its Malmo headquarters, IP specialist Awapatent is a perennial presence in the upper echelons of the Scandinavian market. Though eminently capable of handling high-stakes litigation, the outfit earned its stripes through its dominance of the prosecution scene – the efforts of Magnus Hallin and Martin Tranälv have helped to ensure it retains its spot in Sweden’s gold tier for prosecution and strategy. In recent years the firm has also made considerable strides in East Asia; the opening of offices in Beijing and Hong Kong in 2015 reflects its commitment to providing high-quality, internationally focused advice on any trademark issue.
AWA Asia is recommended in the
  • Chinese ranking for foreign firms:
    /…/ Ai-Leen Lim has “top-tier skills across the board” and comes highly recommended by foreign associates for her “clear and detailed explanations, thoughtful insights on legal principles and sound suggestions for tactical success”. /…/ shines brightest on perspicacious brand planning and complex IP-rich transactions.

Ai-Leen Lim, CEO of AWA Asia, is also top-listed in the individual ranking.

Awapatent A/S is recommended in the
  • silver category in a general ranking of Danish firms.

In the ranking of individuals, Anette Rasmussen, Attorney at Law, is recommended for both Enforcement and litigation and Prosecution and strategy.

Awapatent AB is recommended in the
