Krogerus' intellectual property practice has once again been ranked among Finland's leading law firms for trademark law in the 2017 edition of WTR 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals.
According to the publication, "The IP group is an integral cog in the machine and, as one of the first in the country to establish a dedicated prosecution practice, has long dispensed highly practical advice on all conceivable trademark-related issues."
A special mention is given to the firm's strong coverage of the media and communications sectors: "Finnish telecoms giant DNA is among the elite companies that benefit from its perceptive guidance in both strategic planning and litigation."
Tuukka Airaksinen, head of the firm’s intellectual property practice, is recognised in the gold category in the individual rankings. He is described as "One of the best in the country with large international trademark portfolios". He is also praised for having "'clearly raised the profile' of his trademark practice with the outstanding quality of his work."
