Patent Editorial 2017
Bech-Bruun is one of the top-tier firms for patent litigation in this jurisdiction. "We regard the overall service level as second to none. Response times continue to impress and make us feel highly valued as customers," says one client. The firm operates from offices in Copenhagen and Aarhus. Its standout patent litigator is Klaus Ewald Madsen. He is supported by lawyers such as Arly Carlquist, Mikkel Friis Rossa and Christian Vinding Thomsen, who advises on regulatory matters in the life science sector. One client regards IP transactions specialist Rossa as "an upcoming star" and admires his "to-the-point advice, can-do attitude and impressive business understanding". The firm welcomed Martin Dræbye Gantzhorn as partner in its life sciences and healthcare practice. "Martin is very sharp, you notice when you're up against him," says a rival. Johnny Petersen is a notable associate.

 

Trade Mark & Copyright Editorial 2017
Market commentators say Bech-Bruun is one of the best Danish law firms to instruct for trade mark disputes. The firm's trade mark prosecution practice has steadily grown over recent years under the leadership of soft IP litigator Claus Barrett Christiansen. According to one client, Christiansen delivers "excellent on-time work … with a great understanding of the client's needs". An opponent says Christiansen is "pleasant and extremely knowledgeable". Niels Andersen, Mikkel Friis Rossa and the "very clever" Arly Carlquist are among the partners who advise on copyright and technology-related IP matters including transactions. Rossa "never overcomplicates or oversells", according to one client who adds: "He offers clear opinions without the usual and dreadfully tiring reservations and qualifications." The client continues: "As a bonus, Mikkel's impressive response time and welcoming nature makes you always feel as his number one client."

IP litigator and franchising specialist Dan Bjerg Geary, who recently joined the firm as partner, has already started impressing clients with his "theoretical knowledge" and "pragmatic commercially-minded" advice. Copyright specialist Peer Petersen left the firm to head up Bird & Bird's IP practice in Denmark. Louise Mühlbach Breining and Inge Kirstine Skou are the rising stars to watch.

Claus Barrett Christiansen’s leadership of the IP group is robust and resolute, a reflection of his litigation skills. “He’s the breadwinner of the practice – a very skilled attorney who deserves the highest of recommendations.

Dan Bjerg Geary recently joined forces with him to successfully demonstrate the likelihood of confusion on behalf of Fiskars Corporation in a trademark infringement case, consequently securing the company’s mark. “Dan’s a really dedicated lawyer who always performs at the top level, providing pragmatic advice that perfectly matches his clients’ needs.
