IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners:
IP consultancy Valea has won a place among the elite, as one of only two firms to be highly recommended for prosecution in Sweden. This is not least thanks to the robust team spirit that is its hallmark: clients get the knowledge and expertise not just of the relationship partner, but of the whole organisation. It is also committed to forging close ties with patrons by aligning its advice with their business objectives, and boasts deep-seated expertise across a number of technical disciplines. “Extremely precise and eloquent in opposition proceedings and appeals at the EPO”, founding partner Andrew Hammond is a star here. Alongside his bustling post-grant practice, he is also a reassuring presence in important cross-border suits.
