About me

Kim Finnilä / European Patent Attorney

Kim retired from professional practice in February 2021. He has an extensive background in IP, lately focused on patents, portfolio and conflict management and related litigation.

He still remains active in IP organizations and related delegations and working parties: Reporter General of the Study & Working Committee of FICPI as well as a member in the International Patents group; Vice-Chair of the Litigation Committee of epi; and Deputy Chair of EPLIT. He is also past President of the Finnish Association for Corporate Patent Agents and past President of the European Patent Institute -  epi. Kim has also been a Board member of the Finnish AIPPI Group and the Association for Industrial Property Rights as well as the Association for Finnish Patent Attorneys. This has given him an in-depth knowledge of how patent matters are dealt with in the patent profession, in industry and with authorities, as well as in international non-governmental organizations.

IP matters require concentration, patience and perseverance; something he continuously cultivates in his free time by various forms of exercise and expanded culinary activities.

As always, he remains open for new challenges!
