Awapatent becomes AWA and expands to new markets

After 120 years, Awapatent now changes its brand to AWA.

“We make this change to have a brand that better reflects the extensive and true full-service offering of intellectual property services that we have today,” says Magnus Hallin, CEO at AWA.

“Services related to patents have, since our founding in 1897 by Anders Wilhelm Anderson, been a large part of our offering. It will definitely continue to be so in the future, but our current services cover the whole spectrum of intellectual properties and assets, ranging from search and analytics, filing and prosecution, to litigation, licensing, strategy and unfair competition.”

The new brand coincides with other news from us:

  • An easy-to-use digital IP intelligence service, PatAlert, has recently been launched
  • A new client platform, initially for the renewal of IP rights, is about to see the light of day
  • A desk has been established at the tech incubator CIC (Cambridge Innovation Center) in Boston in accordance with AWA’s ambition to be present in innovative client environments
