Martin’s considerable expertise cover a range of intellectual property law, from commercial contracts, marketing law and trade secrets to IP drafting, prosecution, litigation and arbitration.
He is one of few practitioners with experience across patents, trademarks copyrights and designs, regularly advising his clients on both strategy and implementation across their entire IP rights portfolios. He often works on cross border litigation and oppositions, operating internationally across multiple jurisdictions and helping his clients to navigate the intricacies of global IP law.

Having worked as an attorney for around 25 years, Martin has experience within many different industries, across a range of traditional and emerging technologies, including food, medical equipment, clothing and fashion, automotive, shipping and maritime, medical equipment and construction among others.
Before joining Zacco, Martin worked as a partner for more than 17 years with one of Sweden’s large IP law firms, where he was both a board member and a member of the Advisory Board. He has previously also worked as a law clerk at a Swedish District Court and as an attorney with two other law firms.

Martin obtained his law degree at the Uppsala University in 1994, which included international studies in the UK, and in 1997 he obtained a Master of European and Comparative Law from Maastricht University, where he graduated top of his class. Martin is also an authorised Swedish patent attorney.

A member of several associations of IP practitioners for many years (AIPPI, VIRK, UNION-IP and ECTA) and having worked extensively with cases involving multiple jurisdictions and territories, Martin has a breadth of experience in international IP matters and a comprehensive network of well-known and highly professional foreign attorneys that he has worked in close collaboration with over many years.

Martin is passionate about furthering the IP profession and contributing to its development. As a result, he regularly lectures on patent litigation and patent claim interpretation to Masters Students at the local university in Gothenburg.
