Intellectual property often represents the biggest and most valuable asset of a company. The need to use and protect these assets in the best way possible is growing. Lindahl’s top-ranked IP practice, in combination with a prominent business law practice, puts the firm in a unique position in the Swedish market.
Lindahl acts for high-profile consumer brands in trademark and design-related matters. For instance, Lindahl coordinates global IP litigation for international companies and manages global trademark portfolios. Furthermore, Lindahl assists several successful Swedish companies in developing their international branding and trademark strategies. This work includes advising on how to develop and maintain strong trademark profiles, IP litigation, trademark portfolio management and trademark licensing.
Lindahl also has a prominent copyright and design practice and acts for collecting societies, copyright organisations and authors, among others. On the patent side, Lindahl’s position is well recognised. Lindahl also has outstanding IP commercialisation expertise and unique transactional capabilities in corporate and financial transactions involving complex IP issues. Clients appreciate Lindahl’s ability to advise not only on traditional IP law, but also on related fields of commercial law that affect IP rights.
The broad IP experience in Lindahl’s 40-lawyer team is often key to our success.
No nonsense – in a professional way
Lindahl attaches great importance to performing all work as cost-effectively as possible. The firm therefore tailors its services to each individual client and issue. While extensive legal work is sometimes required, simple solutions are also available. Lindahl is pleased to have earned a no-nonsense reputation among its clients. This aptly describes the firm’s approach and is a central feature of the practice. The firm’s ability to explain legal issues to the client in a clear and relevant fashion, no matter how complicated the client’s legal challenges are, sets it apart in the legal market.
Professionalism is multi-faceted. For Lindahl, it means taking account of clients’ commercial realities. This requires a broad and penetrating insight into all aspects of corporate law. It also requires detailed knowledge of clients’ companies and a sound understanding of the sectors in which they operate.
Lindahl’s ambition is always to surpass clients’ expectations and deliver a sensibly priced service that adds value to their business. Lindahl undertakes to be a value-creating business partner to the firm’s clients; it aims to offer competence and professionalism, commitment and proactivity, and clear advice.
