Ström & Gulliksson is happy to announce that Mr. William Helin, a registered European patent attorney, joins our office in Stockholm today.

William Helin holds a MSc. in Mechanical Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology. He has worked in the intellectual property field since 2000 and has IP experience from various important angles – as a patent examiner at the Patent Office, as a patent attorney in private practice and as an in-house patent counsel in industry. Most recently, William held a role as a Business Unit IP Counsel at ABB with global IP portfolio responsibilities and he is experienced in the development and implementation of strategies that maximize the value of different IP portfolios of various sizes.

Christian Arkelius, Partner and Head of the Stockholm office comments:

“We are very delighted to sign William for Ström & Gulliksson and I can’t wait to get started to work together. William has a background in Mechanical Engineering seasoned with seven years of experience at ABB. William’s IP and tech background is a very good fit with of the other patent attorneys of our team in Stockholm. As a Swedish top-tier firm, it is important for us to expand our footprint in the capital even further. With the hire of William, we will be six European patent attorneys in the Stockholm office. Later this month we will also add a trainee patent attorney and a paralegal with portfolio management experience. Together, our team of patent attorneys and paralegals will be able to expand our service offerings even further, both locally and overseas.

“I am delighted to be joining Ström & Gulliksson in Stockholm”, says William. “The chance to work in a top-tier private practice patent firm is an exciting one and, at Ström & Gulliksson, I will have the opportunity to work with some of the best attorneys in the country. The co-operation with Gulliksson also appeals me. It means that my new colleagues and I can bring excellent IP advice to our clients from our “common powerhouse” of lawyers at Gulliksson and patent attorneys of Ström & Gulliksson. I hope that I, with almost 20 years of IP experience from different roles, can bring a fresh approach and help the firm further improve its client offering both in Sweden and overseas.”
