We are extremely happy to announce that in patent as well as trademark firm rankings in Finland, Papula-Nevinpat continues in the top tiers in Managing Intellectual Property’s IP STARS 2023.

Some testimonials received from our clients:

“They are customer-oriented, good quality, professional patent attorneys who know the technology field well and provide swift service.”

“They are easy to work with and always on time with work that is not just accurate but very high quality. Everything always works – they have very good processes and a great attitude among workers.”

We are also pleased to share that this year our patent and trademark attorneys gathered altogether six nominations.

IP Stars are senior IP practitioners who have been highly recommended by their peers and clients. Our managing director Markku Simmelvuo was named as a Patent Star 2023. Trademark Stars were given to our European trademark attorneys Heidi Mikkola and Jussi Mikkola.

Rising Stars are some of the best up-and-coming IP practitioners in private practice who contributed to the success of their firms and clients. Papula-Nevinpat’s European Patent Attorneys Mikko Nissinen, Miika Tupala and Juha Voutilainen have been recognized as Rising Stars of the 2023 edition of Managing IP’s Rising Stars publication.

IP STARS rankings are published annually and the results are based on extensive research, assessing the strength of the firm’s IP team, workload, outcomes achieved for clients and track record. Managing IP has been covering IP law and practice already since 1990 and covers more than 70 jurisdictions.
