”I consider my work on the IP sector to be rewarding and meaningful, as I have the opportunity to constantly adopt new solutions and promote the competitiveness of my clients with broad and long-standing expertise. I also find it positive that through my work, I am able to advance technological progress on a more general level.”

Over the course of his long and successful career, Klaus Roitto has accumulated a wide range of experience and knowledge in the IP sector. He has experience in court proceedings of patent disputes as a technical adviser and has participated actively in the development of the field as a recognised expert in international organisations of the IP sector.

Klaus’ technical areas of expertise include mechanical solutions on a general level, and he is specialised in solutions concerning transportation engineering (means of transport and vehicles, including ship technology), construction engineering (including heating and ventilation), manufacturing and material technologies (particularly manufacturing methods and metal and plastic machining), tools, mechanical engineering, fire prevention systems and sewage and sludge treatment.

Before his career as a patent attorney, Klaus compiled a series of product-specific material selection guides for the members of the Federation of Finnish Metal and Engineering Industries to facilitate the material selection process of designers (in relation to tools etc.).
