“On every occasion, AWA provides a prompt and friendly service, and delivers high-quality technical advice that is underpinned by a deep sense of commercial understanding.” The leading IP powerhouse amasses great praise each year, and when taking a closer look at its impressive strength in-depth, comprehensive suite of services and geographical coverage, it is clear why. “Its practitioners are remarkable, hands-on and customer-orientated, traits that are also evident in their swift, distinct and thorough responses.” Epitomising all these qualities and more are Kristian Martinsson, Ann-Charlotte Jarvinen, Lars Pettersson and Ted Hagman. “A fantastic partner to those looking to protect their marks in Europe, Kristian has an outstanding command of the relevant legislation and provides timely, thoughtful advice. He also has great working knowledge of US legislation, which allows him to be thorough and holistic in his guidance. He is absolutely excellent, and his insights and strategic counsellor are immensely superior.” WTR 1000 newcomer Jarvinen also shows great dexterity on the non-contentious side. “She is knowledgeable, service-minded and quick. Her approach is fact-based, backed by great understanding of business realities and her recommendations also include opinions on the effects of hypothetical actions – a rare and valuable combination in a practitioner.” Pettersson and Hagman also receive glowing praise: “Fast and efficient, Lars is great to have on the other side of a dispute too. He is polite, straightforward and always on the lookout for win-win outcomes.” All-rounder “Hagman’s strength lies in the fact that he understands his client’s business models as well as their products and can advise accordingly. He gives clear explanations as to which route is the best and will always provide recommendations that have the best pay-out.”
