Potter Clarkson expands in Sweden with Gothenburg office

Potter Clarkson is expanding its presence in Sweden with a new office at GoCo Health Innovation City in Gothenburg.

The firm has a long-established reputation in the Swedish life sciences sector and the innovation cluster provides the ideal base for client meetings, networking, and hosting events.

Helen Rehse, a highly skilled patent attorney with more than 20 years' experience in prosecuting Swedish and European patent applications, will lead the Gothenburg team. She will be joined by specialist trade mark and design attorney, Fredrik Weyde. They will be supported by fellow patent and trade mark attorneys, as well as litigation & licensing lawyers to provide the full range of intellectual property law services to clients in Gothenburg.

Potter Clarkson’s roots in Sweden go back more than three decades and, since opening its offices in Stockholm and Medicon Village in Lund in 2016, it has grown its life sciences practice and expanded into other key sectors, including engineering, software & AI, and food & agritech.

This investment in Gothenburg underlines the firm’s commitment to the Swedish market, as Helen Rehse, patent attorney at Potter Clarkson, explains:

Gothenburg has a long history of innovation, as the home of some of the most significant Swedish brands. This is the next natural step for Potter Clarkson in Sweden, and we are excited to grow both our client base and team of attorneys here."

Gabriella Westerberg, director of Nordic operations at Potter Clarkson, added:

Designed to optimise collaboration, GoCo Health Innovation City is a great fit for our firm. At Potter Clarkson, our multi-disciplinary teams work in partnership with our clients to maximise the value from their innovation. We are delighted to be part of this thriving and innovative community.”
