Ulrich Gramstrup Bærentsen

Partner, European Patent Attorney, Certified Danish Patent Agent (CDPA)
B.Sc. in electrical engineering

Ulrich started working in Patentgruppen in 2004, first as a trainee and since 2007 as a patent attorney. In 2018, Ulrich obtained qualification as European Patent Attorney.

Through the years, Ulrich has been working with IPR both as a patent attorney and as an in-house Patent Manager in a company within the wind turbine industry. As an in-house Patent Manager, Ulrich was in charge of developing and maintaining a large IPR portfolio, surveying competitors’ IPR, bringing IPR into focus on all levels of the organisation as well as developing an IPR set up and auditing thereof.

In recent years, Ulrich has combined his position as patent attorney and Partner in Patentgruppen with an in-house position as Patent Manager in two companies. He is fysically present in those two companies on a weekly basis and is responsible for all aspects of IPR, including reporting to the Board and to the Directors, surveillance and maintenance of IPR portfolio, and patent prosecution. This enables a deep collaboration between Patentgruppen and the companies, whereby the companies benefit from having an in-house patent manager with direct acces to Patentgruppen’s expertise.

Ulrich has the ability to support a wide range of the challenges, small and large companies are met with in the process of defining their IP strategy.
