Silver – Firms: litigation
“A formidable presence in the courtroom, Gulliksson’s lawyers are thorough, hard-working and innovative in their approach, and they never miss a single detail in complex cases.” They regularly act on behalf of industry heavyweights in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and technology industries, and have recently been representing Bosch in proceedings against Electrolux, as well as Sandoz in a tricky dispute concerning three patent families. “An absolutely brilliant and phenomenal litigator”, Magnus Dahlman took the lead on the latter. His knowledge of regulatory issues brings an added dimension to the practice, and, similarly, in Malmö Jens Olsson combines his IP and marketing law knowledge to secure crisp results in both contentious and transactional settings.

“Top-tier firm Gulliksson has an experienced, diligent and knowledgeable squad that have a presence in the courtroom.” It works side by side with premier prosecution outfit Ström & Gulliksson “to gain a firm understanding of technical concepts and swiftly implement them into a judicial framework”. The set is fazed by nothing; and with Mattias Malmstedt, Magnus Dahlman and Jens Olsson on deck, rights holders facing critical disputes can rest easy. “A splendid litigator, Malmstedt has a brilliant legal mind and can foresee his opponent’s next move; he knows how to use his toolbox effectively and is willing to go the extra mile to achieve clients’ goals.” He recently secured a positive judgment for Seiko Epson and, together with Dahlman, successfully represented Sandoz against Mundipharma. “A premier choice for life science briefs and a tough adversary, Magnus has a keen eye for detail and calmly puts forth convincing arguments.” Based in Malmö, “Olsson expertly reads any room he is in, be it in court or at the negotiating table, and provides sharp, strategic and tactically soundadvice”.

Gulliksson’s commercial service is specifically designed to meet the needs of a high-level client base for whom intellectual property is pivotal. A close association with top-tier prosecution firm Ström & Gulliksson enables the lawyers here to efficiently tap into a deep reservoir of technical expertise, which proves to be a distinguishing asset in litigation. The firm is also a boon to rights holders looking for consistency of quality and approach across the contentious/non-contentious divide. With finesse, captain of the side Mattias Malmstedt handles large cases for top pharmaceutical companies, often with proceedings occurring in parallel across multiple jurisdictions. “He is a fantastic litigator who knows that you can win or lose a case on the detail. He has a meticulous mind but also never loses sight of the overall strategic and commercial objectives.” He frequently links up with Magnus Dahlman to give clients a strong one-two punch. Dahlman, who joined from Setterwalls in 2017 and then made partner in 2018, is a repository of unshakeable trust for generic drug companies. “He understands the industry and is an experienced, calm, tactical and convincing litigator.” Managing partner Jens Olsson is another “great lawyer to have on your team in cross-border litigations and transactions”. “It is impressive how well-rounded his knowledge of intellectual property is.”
