Eight of NJORD Law Firm’s partners are ranked among the best European lawyers by Chambers and Partners Europe 2017, including two newcomers and a handful of long-standing notable practitioners.

Chambers and Partners’ recent release of its 2017 guide for the global market, including excellent rankings for NJORD Law Firm, is now followed by the Chambers 2017 guide with recommendations of the most prominent lawyers and law practices across Europe.

We are especially proud finally to see Partner Thomas Ryhl ranked within Competition/European Law:

“Thomas Ryhl of NJORD Law Firm is a well-regarded competition, pharmaceutical and procurement law specialist. He has considerable litigation experience and recently represented Ferring Pharmaceuticals before the ECJ concerning trade mark law and parallel imports of pharmaceuticals.”

For the second year in a row, Chambers commends one of the strongest Employment partner teams in Tallinn, Triinu Hiob and Katrin Sarap, who are recognised for their willingness "to go the extra mile in lobbying for our cause", clients say, describing the team as "trustworthy, punctual and solution-oriented”.

Chambers welcomes new notable practitioners – and honours long-standing ones

In addition, Chambers welcomes two Up and Coming partners among the ranked partners. Highlighting her experience in the start-up and technology scene, clients say about Partner Anne Veerpalu that she has a “direct and quick approach”, while Banking & Finance Partner Ulrich Hejle is highlighted for being "good at discussing options” and that “his attention to detail means you get to the right solution".

The 2017 guide also includes excellent department rankings and reviews such as "they are effective, proactive and reasonable in their approach", says one client about NJORD’s Intellectual Property practice.

Another client emphasizes the Dispute Resolution practice’s abilities to adapt to the client’s needs: "NJORD's team is perceptive to my business needs and does what it can to accommodate my needs and help me reach my targets".

Finally, veteran notable practitioners within IP, Shipping, and Tax – Partners Jeppe Brogaard Clausen, Ulla Fabricius, and Robert Mikelsons – were once again highlighted for their expertise and professional handling of clients.

NJORD Estonia explains: Reckless license agreement can wreck your brand!

As Estonia is gaining recognition for its successful increase of creativity, more and more brands are spreading beyond our borders. When noticing Estonian design in foreign airports or department stores, many of us Estonians feel impressed. But, be sure to register your brand as a trademark to ensure legal protection for your idea. Copyrights, trademarks, designs and patents can be registered both domestically and on a more or less global scale, and it gives the registered author the exclusive right to use his or her own creation in any way and to permit or prohibit the use of the work by other persons. In other words, no-one should earn money on your creativity without a license!
