I have 30 years’ experience as a lawyer and for approximately 25 years I have specialized in intellectual property disputes. I represent clients both in arbitration and before courts of law, with a special focus on patents, copyright and trade secrets.

Work highlights include: patent litigation relating to the active substances in, and formulations of, the pharmaceutical products Losec, Prozac and OxyContin; successfully representing a client in the first IP case passing the requirement of leave to appeal and certiorari to the Supreme Court since the restructuring of the Swedish IP court system in 2016; arbitration concerning scope and term of major multi-jurisdictional cross-licensing agreement; and defending the validity of a client’s infringed patent relating to large infrastructure projects. The latter resulted in one of the largest awards of damages in Swedish patent history. I have also represented a client in a dispute concerning electronic signatures with a value of SEK 7 billion.

Recent recognition includes:

Ranked in Chambers Global 2018 under Intellectual Property, mentioned as a "very experienced patent litigator. He provides solid, sensible advice, is service-minded and has a high level of commercial awareness."

Current and former positions include:

Member of the board and advisory board of EPLAW, member of the board of AIPPI Sweden, Head of IP at Lindahl Law firm.
