Kolster’s trademark attorneys highly ranked for prosecution and strategy − special mention for dispute resolution and IP commercialisation


 February 26, 2019 (updated July 3, 2019)

Kolster has once again received international recognition for its competence of the trademark prosecution and strategy work in the annual WTR 1000 assessment by the World Trademark Review publication. Not only was Kolster commended for its expertise in protecting brands, but this year also for its trademark enforcement, litigation and IP commercialisation work.

The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals 2019 describes Kolster in the following manner:

“Kolster is one of the longest-standing IP firms in Finland and is a go-to for clients with overseas interests; for example, it demonstrates impeccable expertise facilitating the localisation of Western brands in the Chinese market”. In addition, the company’s anti-counterfeiting and Kolster Market Watch™ services are to fame; more than 220 global brand owners use these services.

Out of Kolster’s trademark specialists, Head of Trademarks Joose Kilpimaa and Partner Jani Kaulo in charge of the Kolster China Desk™ and Kolster Market Watch™ services got a special mention for their expertise. In addition, Miia Hirvonen and Ari-Pekka Launne, who no longer work for Kolster, received special recognitions.

WTR 1000 is an independent assessor of the trademark sector, which lists the best professionals from more than 80 countries. It published the results of this survey based on interviews of trademark professionals and clients in February 2019 for the ninth time.  

The survey evaluated the ability of IP firms offering services for trademark prosecution, enforcement and litigation, strategic advice, and anti-counterfeiting issues.
