Karin Büsselmann, Louise Oskarsson

I am one of the founding partners of Westerberg and joined the team in 2010 at another law firm. I am a committed trademark specialist with a passion for assisting clients in building strong brands from a strategic and legal perspective. I appreciate straight forward communication with clients where we work together as a team. Feedback from the clients provides an opportunity to develop our understanding of their business and increase our ability to provide valuable legal and strategic input.

I have over twenty years of experience within the IP field. During my career I have covered most areas of IP and related areas of law, but always with a strong focus on trademarks, designs, copyright and domain names, and particularly the management of large trademark portfolios. I have extensive global experience in development of trademark strategies for a vast variety of trademarks within separate fields and with different types of challenges.

I am head of the firm’s team of trademark lawyers and paralegals that manage our clients’ IP portfolios. In this role I advise on trademark strategies and IP strategy in general. The day-to-day work include everything from IP protection and maintenance; management of trademark, design and domain name portfolios; clearance searches conducted prior to filing and/or launch; and monitoring and enforcement strategies. I also supervise the process from filing to registration and I manage actions such as oppositions and cancellations. In collaboration with clients I assist in for instance setting up IP strategies, defending famous brands against dilution, and acting for avoidance of degeneration.

I am an authorized Swedish trademark attorney and a professional representative before the EUIPO and a member of, inter alia, the International Trademark Association (INTA), the Swedish Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (SFIR) and MARQUES.

Recent recognition includes:

Included in Managing IP’s list of Top 250 Women in IP in their 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 editions.

“A seasoned trademark attorney with a great knowledge of an array of trademark matters, Helena is commercially savvy and truly understands and prioritises business needs while being well prepared for new trends in the industry.” (WTR 1000, 2023)

Ranked as a Next Generation Partner by Legal 500 (2023).
