Hi! I'm Markus Levlin,
I can help you with IPR.

I’m a father, nerd, sailor, and an experienced European Patent Attorney covering IPR in general and patents in particular, in Finland, Europe, and globally. I focus on optimizing the value of IPR decisions on the strategic level. IPR is only valuable and relevant if it can help your company now and in the future.

I have worked on IPR since 1996 and have experience in the management of the largest patent law firm in Finland as well as a listed software company. Lately I have focused more on new product development, IPR, and advisor positions in startups. I have worked both in the practicalities of the IPR and strategic positions. For more detailed work history, please visit my LinkedIn profile.

Holistic IPR services,
because strategy matters.

Planning your future

Funding comes soon, product launch then, new market next year - what to do with IPR with the budget we have, always too little time and manpower?

Patent applications, tedious paperwork

Drafting applications, fighting to get them through patent offices in Finland and globally through my network. This is what I do.

Finding your invention

You have this mess, this big pile of ideas, the upcoming product launch, right? And only the need to do something. I will find and define your invention, to get at the protectable thing. Like the sculpture in a raw block of stone - it is there, somewhere.

Startup hand holding

You don’t need just a dog who barks when paid and ordered. You need someone to guide you and explain the strange things. To hold your hand through the unfamiliar landscape.

This is how I work,
no unexpected invoices.

Step 1Meeting

First meeting is always free. Let's get to know each other and get a feel if we can be helpful for each other. This way I can get an overview of your business and your ideas.

Step 2Plan and offer

Often I can create a plan and an offer during the first meeting. Mostly I offer a fixed price for the entire work. No open-ended hourly billing, unless that is what you want.

Step 3Project

When you accept the offer and give your go ahead I will start working according to the plan.

Step 4Review of results

Finally, after producing the report or the patent application, I would like go through the outcome with you to make sure you have digested all the critical information.
