Juli Mansnérus joins D&I Partnership

Innovation Powerhouse strengthened with IP and Life Sciences expert Juli Mansnérus.

Juli Mansnérus is a respected practitioner focused on IP & Life Sciences dispute resolution and transactions as well as broad regulatory and commercialisation advice.

“I am proud to join the partnership at D&I. I am truly impressed by the Powerhouse operating model and the true seamlessness across the firm. The world becomes more complex and faster all the time. Working efficiently across disciplines is the key when riding the wave. To a researcher at heart, crossing the old-fashioned silos for accelerating innovation – in a manner that is sustainable both legally and ethically – is deeply inspiring to me. As a new partner in Innovation Powerhouse, I look forward to supporting our dynamic clients in achieving their objectives and growth”, Juli says.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Juli to our Innovation Powerhouse. She has built impressive credentials and vast experience in a wide range of technology-intensive industries and all types of IPR and technology litigations and transactions with a special expertise in patents, trade secrets, pharmaceutical law and health technology. Juli, along with Anna Haapanen and myself, will have a key role in our team”, says Jukka Lång, Head of Innovation Powerhouse.

“With Juli on board, we are confident that we will be able to meet the future challenges of our clients facing demanding IP disputes and other IPR related assignments. In addition, we believe that she will take our already impressive Life Sciences and Healthcare practice to a whole new level. Besides her efficiency and superior substance knowledge, she is a warm, motivating colleague with a good sense of humor who is extremely easy to work with. Most importantly, she shares our core values and cultural cornerstones which are key at D&I”, says Managing Partner Anders Carlberg.
