Ole Kragh Møller

Partner, Certified Danish Patent Attorney

Innovation companies can pride themselves of that very label because they invest energy and time in the development of products and new ways of doing things in areas where others have not yet seen the potential. I therefore take pride in treating all companies individually and assessing and establishing the needs of the individual company and in that way determine the IPR strategy which would be most beneficial to pursue for that company.

The cornerstone of a close cooperation with a client is not just the technical or legal aspects, but the merger of these two aspects with the business of the client. I aim to find the core of each development project or problem in order to be able to advise how profits can be boosted through efficient use of the IPR system. Accordingly, my approach is to advise how to be proactive with respect to e.g. patenting and design registration as well as to provide analyses which may provide my client with the required calm to adopt a wait-and-see attitude and let the competitors reveal their products and business models.

At Hoffmann Dragsted, I am part of a team which allows me to maintain my focus on the gains of our clients.
