Artis Kromanis, PhD
Partner, IP Appraiser, European Patent Attorney
Providing added value to the client’s intellectual property brings me great satisfaction. In my nearly 20 years of professional experience, I have learned that sometimes it is worth doing more than necessary and sharing the risks as it brings common benefits.
My background in mechanical engineering and the position of Associate Professor at Riga Technical University allows me to provide efficient expertise for clients’ inventions, patentability and designs.
I believe that learning non-stop is the key to constant growth and success. Obtaining the European Patent Attorney’s qualification strengthened my field of expertise and enabled me to provide high-standard services to my clients. It also helps me to guide our firm’s patent team.
