Unlocking future opportunities: Barker Brettell Sweden AB welcomes key hires and expands into new premises

Barker Brettell, the Intellectual Property (IP) firm, has had an exciting year of growth in Sweden during 2023. The business has strengthened and developed its service offering in Stockholm by recruiting four IP specialists over the course of the year, doubling in size. To accommodate the expansion, the team has also moved to larger offices, close to Stockholm’s central station. To further support local clients in Sweden, Barker Brettell also has office space at the Green Innovation Park in Uppsala.

Swedish and European trade mark attorney Rebecca Huselius joined in February from Roschier, shortly followed by IP paralegal Emelie Tyndall joining the practice from Vinge. Patent consultant Cecilia Forslund joined the team from Zacco to further strengthen the business; she also has valuable experience from working at the Swedish Patent Office (PRV). In December the team grows further, with Swedish and European patent attorney Malin Keijser Bergöö joining from Rouse AB, bringing significant expertise in contentious matters including the European Patent Litigator qualification from CEIPI.

Liselott Enström, Swedish and European trade mark partner, who was the first recruit into the Swedish office in March 2019, commented:

“It is wonderful to reflect on all we have achieved in just a few years. We really do have a team to be proud of here at Barker Brettell Sweden AB and I am delighted that Rebecca, Emelie, Cecilia and Malin have chosen to join us. We look forward to continuing to work hard to look after our clients and protect their businesses by supporting their IP strategies.”

Yvonne Johnson, partner at Barker Brettell LLP, added:

“The move to new, larger, premises in Stockholm reflects our commitment to our Swedish business and the desire to grow our team here. We have found such a great fit for our culture and business here in Sweden, which is just a really natural home for Barker Brettell’s collaborative and proactive approach to supporting our clients and becoming part of their team. When the business was first opened in 2019 I couldn’t have hoped for a better team than the one we have right now – a group of fantastic and well-respected IP specialists who are passionate about what they do. I am so excited about the future and what we can achieve together.”

Barker Brettell has five offices across the UK and Sweden, with experienced IP professionals advising on patents, trade marks, designs and copyright. With expertise in cross-border IP matters and managing complex portfolios, as well as a reputation for strategic and pragmatic advice, the team’s strengths have resulted in many clients trusting Barker Brettell with their global IP portfolios, recognising the benefits of the firm’s integrated approach and extensive knowledge.
