Kolster is a rarity in the Finnish business arena. The 145-year age of the family company is not a coincidence, but the result of long-term work and professional skill. Perseverance and expertise continue to be needed as the number of innovations is declining and competition on the market is becoming fiercer. More responsibility is required from IPR operators as environmental and climate issues have become a permanent part of the IPR industry’s agenda, writes Kolster’s CEO Timo Helosuo.
The year 2019 challenged our IPR professionals, but also included many successes and insights. In the following, I highlight some memorable moments and themes.
Causes for celebration at Kolster during the past year have included several international recognitions. I am proud of our team and the fact that we can demonstrate our expertise through our customers. We received recognition, for example, in the World’s Leading Trademark Professionals WTR 1000 review, we were the most recommended international IP firm of 2019 in China and our expertise was ranked in the highest tier 1 category in the international MIP IP Stars interview study, in which we were also awarded special recognition as the “Prosecution Firm of the Year 2019”.
I am looking forward to the year 2020 with enthusiasm. We have new service products, for example, in trademarks, top professionals in the team and a more efficient way of operating in a customer-oriented manner. Versatility, internationality and openness to new things will continue to be our strengths also in the coming year!
Wishing you an inspiring new year 2020!
