Rut Herbjørnsen


I worked as a patent attorney for Albihns from 1996 to 2009, handling patent matters within the fields of physics, electronics and telecommunications. I was also key account manager for some of Albihns' major clients.

After I completed the EQE in 2001 I lectured at Albihns internal preparatory course for EQE until it was taken over by the Swedish IP Academy in 2005. Since then I have been a lecturer at the Swedish IP academy. Within Albihns I also worked as a mentor for new patent attorneys from 2005 to 20009. From 2006 – 2009 I was responsible for the course program of Albihns' course “Fundamentals of European Patent Practice”, which was offered annually to external participants from all over the world.

From January 2008 until November 2009 I was also head of Knowlegde Management within Albihns. This function was part of the corporate management group within Albihns and involved developing structures for the professional training of patent attorneys within Albihns, including developing a trainee programme, the mentorship function and the EQE preparations within Albihns.
