WTR 1000, Individuals: enforcement and litigation
Modern, innovative and dynamic – all perfect words to describe commercial outfit Synch. On the IP front, the crew effortlessly guides start-ups and international businesses through all phases of the trademark life cycle, with a view to keeping costs low and efficiency high. In recent news, the firm underwent a merger with Westermark Anjou on 1 January 2021, which adds to its already strong digital and tech offering and broadens its capital markets service lines. At the forefront of the practice, Sara Sparring and Mathilda Nordmark “are excellent lawyers with a thorough, straightforward approach and a safe pair of hands to anyone looking to protect their brands”. The pair manage and enforce the marks of Apotek Produktion och Laboratorier, one of the largest manufacturers of special pharmaceuticals in Europe. Sparring is lauded for her “hands-on approach and exceptional speaking capabilities” while Nordmark receives praise for her “business understanding, communication skills and refined understanding of legal frameworks”.
IAM Patent 1000, Individuals: litigation
“Innovative and unique”, Synch has adapted its offering to accommodate the evolving needs of Sweden’s high-tech sectors and is the first firm in the Nordics to introduce its very own sandbox to support early-stage legal tech start-ups and entrepreneurs. It is a favourite among software companies and has recently been advising Albacross on the potential protections available for its one-of-a-kind algorithm – a brief on which Mathilda Nordmark played an integral role. The department head also maintains a sophisticated litigation practice, where her intuitive understanding of complex technical matters and the essence of patent infringement arguments yields business-oriented solutions; trademark and brand management expertise is a further string to her bow. Holding down the fort in transactions are Sara Sparring and Johan Tydén. Sparring is a proven performer in the life sciences: she has lately been assisting Immedica Pharma with a range of commercial contracts and provided strategic advice to Region Västerbotten in relation to its business models for new advanced therapies. Tydén is “one of the most respected and experienced lawyers in the telecommunications industry”, as the former head of legal services at Ericsson; with a career that has spanned the journey from 2G to 5G, he is intimately familiar with the tech.
