Technology and IPR


Almgren & Sankamo offers its clients assistance in managing complex and challenging IPR issues. We have specialist knowhow in dealing with patents, trademarks and copyright issues. We aim at thoroughly understanding our client’s business activities and operating environment so that we can provide the client with a precisely tailored solution.


About IPR

The abbreviation IPR stands for Immaterial Property Rights. We advise our clients on many complex and intricate IPR issues such as identifying, licensing and commercialising immaterial rights, and minimising risks.

We have specialist knowhow in dealing with patents, trademarks and copyright issues:

  • Patents and of licensing other rights
  • Registration of trademarks
  • Application issues and trademark disputes
  • Assignment of copyright
  • Legal proceedings over copyright



Our lawyers at Almgren & Sankamo advise companies of all sizes operating in the information technology and communications (ITC) sector. We have in-depth knowledge of the ITC sector and of issues related to the subcontracting practices of technology companies. We provide a full service for assisting clients with the correct drafting of subcontracting and licensing agreements.


Solid ITC contracts

We also advise our clients on ITC projects and deliveries. When a company procures ITC systems and services, extreme caution is needed. Our lawyers provide assistance in drafting ITC contracts and in the contract negotiations associated with them. We have wide-ranging experience in preparing and drafting contracts for software, hardware, licensing, support and maintenance contracts.

For contracts between Finnish companies, we very often apply IT2018 EHK Special Terms and Conditions for the Processing of Personal Data, or contracts based on other standardised terms and conditions. Standardised terms and conditions, as such, rarely meet all the client’s needs so it is important to address any exceptions to the standard terms necessitated by the client’s needs or prevailing circumstances. Our lawyers assist their clients in preparing and drafting contracts based on standard terms & conditions. It is well worth enlisting professional help at an early stage because in ITC contracts in particular the specifications of the product or service are crucially important.
