Extended profile

Louise strategically assists clients to manage their inventions by ensuring that value is maintained and maximised, securing and sustaining a competitive advantage for them in increasingly crowded markets.

Her clients range from pharmaceutical giants to promising IP-rich start-ups, with a focus on turning research results into profitable intellectual assets. She has worked with clients of all sizes across a range of industries to manage their intellectual property rights. This includes through licensing and transfer, and to develop IP strategies and internal processes that align with a company’s business plan.

She also has experience with collaboration agreements under state aid funding and with data protection under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Prior to joining AWA, Louise worked as a lawyer at the Swedish Patent and Registration Office. In this role she supported examiners with legal advice, drafted guidelines, handled restitution cases, patent pledges and supplementary protection certificates. She regularly held trainings on the legal aspects of patent prosecution, the unitary patent and post-grant proceedings.

Louise’s experience allows her to advise clients from both an administrative and judicial perspective. This unique blend ensures her clients’ intellectual property rights are fully protected, maintained and managed.
