CEO of Berggren Visited New York
FACC's member Berggren's CEO, Hannu Syrjälä, visited New York on June 4th and 5th and we had the pleasure of organizing and facilitating program for him and Berggren's Patent Attorney Susanne Somersalo. Berggren is a full-service IP house and we connected them with interesting people and companies here in New York. On Monday we met with Jouni Jauhiainen from Nordea New York and Roope Marttila from Herculex, and had a fascinating discussion about Legal Tech, Fintech and regulation in the market. On Tuesday we took Berggren to a breakfast meeting at the Consulate General of Finland in New York and told our guests about FACC's activies in New york and heard about what the Consulate does in order to help Finnish companies in the U.S. market.
Afterwards we had a lunch meeting with Patent Attorney Nathaniel W. Lucek at Hodgson Russ LPP offices and heard about the current trends of IP law in the U.S. We ended Berggren's visit with drinks at the One World Observatory with few of the people we met during the past two days and some of FACC's board members. A Big thank you to everyone who participated in making Berggren's CEO's visit a success!
