Plesner's patent team rated among the seven leading patent practitioners in Europe
A rating based on the highest number of nominations from colleagues, corporate counsel and other market sources places Plesner's patent team among the seven leading patent law practitioners in Europe. The rating was conducted by the international rating publication Who's Who Legal.
Who's Who Legal has just published its 2020 Legal Market Place Analysis of patent practices in the EMEA region (Europe, the Middle East and Africa).
As the only Nordic law firm, Plesner's patent team is included on a list of the seven leading law firms in Europe (EMEA) based on the team's number of nominations. Who's Who Legal describes Plesner's team as follows:
- Sture Rygaard is endorsed as “one of the best patent litigators in Denmark” and is highlighted in particular for obtaining injunctions for biotech and pharma products.
- Peter-Ulrik Plesner is a strong litigator who navigates complex cases with ease. He focuses on patent litigation in the life sciences sector, and draws praise for his strength in leading technically complex cases.
- Mikkel Vittrup is a seasoned litigator who also has a wealth of experience in regulatory matters. His previous experience includes advising on dietary supplement and medicinal products.
- Jeppe Brinck-Jensen wins widespread commendation from interviewees for his excellent work on issues relating to Danish-focused infringement cases."
At the same time, Who's Who has included Peter-Ulrik Plesner and Sture Rygaard on the list of 10 "Global Elite Thought Leaders" in patent law in EMEA.
Plesner's IP team's market leading position in Denmark is further emphasised by the recognition, earlier this year, of Mikkel Vittrup as a Global Elite Thought Leader in Life Science.
