MAQS awarded Swedish IP Firm of the Year Prize

May 2011

MAQS Law Firm has accepted the distinguished award of “Swedish IP Firm of the Year 2011”. MAQS will be sharing this coveted prize with Danowsky & Partners Advokatbyrå.

“The award is based upon a large study within the IP field, so we are obviously proud that we, together with Danowsky & Partners, have been named as the best IP firms in Sweden”, says Monique Wadsted, partner and responsible for the IP department at the Stockholm office of MAQS.

The prize gives recognition to those firms that have been responsible for the most innovative and challenging IP work during the preceding year and is awarded by the international periodical Managing Intellectual Property. The decision is based upon interviews with clients and the industry.

”We have been building up leading-edge competencies in the IP field for many years. Now we are recognised particularly for our successful work with the Pirate Bay lawsuit, where we represented American film companies that included 20th Century Fox, Columbia, Disney, NBC, Universal and Warner Brothers”, continues Monique Wadsted.

Ever since it was founded, MAQS has always had IP, media, sport and entertainment as a speciality. The cases have involved rights for films, TV, radio and the Internet as well as advertising issues, gambling enterprises, questions involving media and publishing activities, plus dispute resolution. The firm represents both large international as well as small national rights owners. We also represent 50 of the world’s 100 largest trademarks.

MAQS has been growing in recent years and at present has offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmoe, Copenhagen, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. Our offices co-ordinate their work quite closely, which is especially advantageous for clients who are owners of international IP rights.
