A high degree of expertise is needed to be able to manage the complex issues involved in handling intellectual property rights cases, and on behalf of the customer create the best and most suitable protection possible. Ensuring that protection is also valid internationally requires that the expertise of Swedish intellectual property protection representatives be of top quality and fully effective in an international perspective.
In Sweden, SEPAF and the Association of Patent Attorneys in Swedish Industry (SIPF) and the Swedish Intellectual Property Attorney’s Assocation have established a foundation for the purpose of offering practical education and training in intellectual property rights.
Educational programs shall also qualify representatives for trademark, patent and industrial design for authorization before the existing and coming authorities and organs that shall handle authorization. Through this, we assure quality in our field.
