Partner at Valea AB
Magnus Johansson provides legal advice to and represents clients in IP matters, with a particular focus on trademarks, patents and designs. He specialises in contractual and dispute resolution matters, such as handling of patent infringement matters, enforcement of trademarks, and providing advice on contractual aspects of intellectual property. He is also experienced in IP strategy, primarily related to strategic aspects present at the intersection of technology and law, and the management of large IP portfolios and supply chain needed to maintain such portfolios. Mr Johansson also handles extensive international filings of trademark and design applications on a regular basis. His in-depth knowledge and experience of working with patents made it all the more easier for him to become an authorised Swedish patent attorney.
Mr Johansson represents clients before the Swedish Patent and Market Court and in arbitration proceedings, as well as before administrative authorities. He has worked in intellectual property since 2008, when he joined the IP and law department of a supplier within the automotive industry; he has worked continuously with the automotive industry ever since. Mr Johansson joined Valea in 2015 and became the leader of the firm’s legal team in 2018. He has been recognised as an IP Star by Managing Intellectual Property magazine.
