Castrén & Snellman has once again been ranked as one of the leading law firms in Finland in the 2023 edition of the World Trademark Review 1000 – the World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. In the 2023 survey, our firm received top-tier gold rankings in enforcement and litigation as well as prosecution and strategy.

According to the publication, Castrén & Snellman’s IP department is equally brilliant at prosecution and enforcement. One source comments that Castrén & Snellman displays sophisticated and refined expertise in every area of IP law.

On the private practice side, the WTR 1000 ranked seven individuals in the gold tier and only six individuals as leading practitioners in anti-counterfeiting. Our firm’s partner Sakari Salonen, Head of IP, was once again ranked in both of these individual top categories. Head of IP Prosecution Nina Mikander was ranked in silver tier, and IP & Tech litigation partner Kim Parviainen in bronze tier.

Sakari and Kim are described as ‘masterful litigators’. They are ‘entrusted with the portfolio of the footwear brand Crocs and have successfully enforced its famous 3D trademark in Finland.’

Another client describes Nina as ‘a real professional who is attentive to clients’ needs and provides great advice on how to successfully protect brand owners’ IP rights.’
