BAHR – where experience meets creativity

At BAHR we understand that technological change often outpaces the legal framework designed to deal with it. Nonetheless, innovations still need to be protected, transactions to be completed. It takes a special kind of creativity to grasp the implications of technological changes and adapt existing law to them.

We have that creativity. BAHR recruits innovative minds and applies them to challenging assignments. So it is no surprise that we have played a key role in many of the largest, most complex disputes, projects and transactions of recent years, such as:

  • Acting for Vetco Gray Scandinavia (Baker Hughes) in a high-profile patent infringement and validity case brought by Subsea Smart Solutions AS and Subsea Solutions AS, concerning the alleged infringement of a patent for subsea scale squeezing and well killing technology.
  • Successfully representing SG Armaturen, a Norwegian business with operations in more than 30 countries worldwide and subsidiaries in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, the UK and France, in design infringement proceedings against ELKO.
  • Advising Adevinta ASA (ADE) on its USD 9.2 billion M&A deal, in which it will acquire eBay Classifieds Group, the global classifieds arm of eBay Inc, creating the world’s largest online classifieds group.

Recognised as a leader in intellectual property work, we frequently represent major pharmaceuticals originators in cutting-edge patent disputes. We handle all aspects of key IP and technology-related transactions and agreements, from licensing to M&A, IT/software procurement and development, as well as a range of regulatory matters, IP protection and enforcement strategies, unfair competition, marketing law, distribution and agency advice, and everything else hi-tech companies and patent holders require.
