“One and the same solution really does not fit all, as concerns IPR matters.”

Timo Joutsenoja has the main task at Kolster of selling IPR services and developing customer accounts. His tasks include also assignments and developing the service offering related to IPR strategies, portfolio management and valuations. Timo works at the Kuopio office as the contact person of Kolster’s entire IPR and legal services offering in Eastern Finland.

Before joining Kolster in February 2019, Timo worked for VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, dealing with IPR portfolio management and commercialisation. He is well acquainted with matters concerning the management of intellectual property. His former job with UPM’s Corporate Venturing, and research duties with the Tampere University of Technology, provide a perspective to very different operating environments.

“The needs of companies are diverse, and a client of Kolster may be a start-up company as well as a technology giant. In all business activities, it is important to know how to protect products, processes, and the brand, and agree on their usage rights in, for example, acquisitions and cooperation projects.”
