Annika Kilander

European Patent Attorney

Annika Kilander joined Brann in 2013 with a solid base in various areas of practising IP. Starting her career in private practice in the early nineties, Annika spent more than ten years as an industry leader of the global IP department of GE Healthcare’s division for Life Science´s. Apart from the general aspects of patent drafting and prosecution, Annika’s experience includes business-driven use of IP, such as due diligence in acquisitions and before entry into collaborations; clearance of NPIs through freedom-to-operate; in- and outlicensing of IP; as well as third party issues such as infringement analyses and validity assessments. Annika has also successfully and proactively been driving the generation of new IP through joint efforts from market representatives and R&D, often with a clear monetization in view.
