Mikkel counsels within patents and have specific experience within medical technology, mechanics, electronics, scanner technology, software, 3D modelling and artificial intelligence. He is experienced within many areas, such as patent drafting, prosecution, oppositions and appeals at the EPO, invalidity procedure, e.g. IPR-invalidation in the US, enforcement of patents in EU and US, freedom-to-operate, infringement evaluation and licenses.

Mikkel draws on his long experience as in-house patent counsel. This has given him a strong understanding of the value chain of IP in a R&D organization.

As former Director of IP in a quickly expanding high-tech company Mikkel has worked in an environment where there has been a constant need to re-evaluate IP processes. This role has also involved work with strategic management of IP and handling of IP conflicts, which specifically has involved license negotiation and patent enforcement in countries such as Germany and USA.

Mikkel thus advices within all aspects of IPR, for example specifically with portfolio handling and optimizing specific rights. But also generally and strategically, for example in order to improve the value of internal processes or when enforcing of IP rights.
