The final part of the MIP IP STARS 2017 survey rating firms handling patent work as well as listing individual IP stars was published in July 2017. This survey is considered the most authoritative and comprehensive in the IP field. In the survey Papula-Nevinpat’s IP expertise was ranked both in Finland and Russia in the top tiers.

In addition to Managing Director Markku Simmelvuo and Patent Department Director Folke Johansson, the IP STARS patent survey raised Erja Partio, Tomi Konkonen, Jarmo Tanskanen and Timo Kuosmanen among Papula-Nevinpat’s experienced patent attorneys. A customer has praised Timo Kuosmanen to be a “very fast learner” who is “good with inventors and always adds value to the invention”. The customer also added that he “keeps to schedules” and is a “very nice person to interact with”.
