Henrik has extensive experience advising clients on all patent-related matters, most recently with a major German IP law firm and in-house with a major pharmaceutical company.

He has worked with all aspects of IP concerning pharmaceutical inventions, including SPCs. At the pharmaceutical company, he was responsible for EPO oppositions and therefore has substantial experience in both arguing cases before the opposition divisions and boards of appeal of the EPO, as well as working with the commercial aspects of pharmaceutical patenting.

Henrik furthermore has experience with patent litigation in Denmark supporting attorneys at law in arguing patent cases before the Danish courts, primarily in pharmaceutical patent litigation. He has acted as a court-appointed expert (skønsmand), which assists the court in determining the facts of the case.

In addition to working in contentious proceedings, he maintains his drafting and prosecution skills when assisting clients in protecting their innovations. He believes strongly in working closely with each individual client to arrive at the best filing strategy for the client, since the client’s business should take center stage in determining the strategy.

In addition to working with pharmaceutical portfolios, Henrik further has experience with chemical patents in general, in particular polymer-related inventions, such as coatings, hydrogels etc.
