You provide legal advice and risk assessments connected to IP law, such as trademarks, copyrights and domain names, and you develop and implement strategies as well as manage all aspects of our global brand-related IP portfolio. Representing Sandvik before local authorities and government agencies is an important part of your mission, as is drafting, reviewing and negotiating different types of agreements, e.g. license, settlement, distribution, co-existence and prior-rights. You also manage anti-counterfeiting actions and global enforcements, and to some extent litigations and other legal disputes, including due diligence in acquisitions or divestments.
