I joined Westerberg in 2019 as a senior associate. I had worked with the team for several years at another law firm. Prior to this, I served as senior legal counsel at a Swedish collective rights’ management organization where I was responsible for legal advice on global licensing.

I have worked within the field of IP since 2009 with a focus on copyright, where I have litigated and advised clients in a wide range of industries. I also have broad experience in trademarks, design, unfair marketing and trade secrets, on which I have advised and litigated, nationally and internationally. I consider clear lawyer-to-client communication and organizational skills to be the key to giving professional legal advice, whether litigating for a major corporation, advising a small start-up or working in mergers and acquisitions on behalf of IP clients.

Recent work highlights include advising a leading global music licensing hub; representing a major tobacco company in design matters before the General Court; defending a major pharmaceutical company’s trademark rights; and defending an industrial company against claims for misappropriation of trade secrets and copyright infringement.

I am a member of AIPPI, SFU and SFIR. I have also lectured in trademark law at Uppsala University and speak regularly on a wide variety of legal topics.
