Fredrik Roos

Partner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association

Profile

Since 2003, I have been assisting companies with advice relating to technology, IP, commercial contracts, data and privacy.

I am a partner since 2010 and the leader of Setterwalls’ IP/Tech team. I am a technology lawyer and assist Swedish and international companies with technology and IP intensive projects including partnerships, procurement, transactions, licensing, e-commerce, social media, telecommunications and intellectual property rights. I regularly advice on complex matters in relation to the introduction of new technologies and digital services.

Based on my experience in both privacy and intellectual property law, and my technology background, I have found a niche in assisting clients with the negotiation of complex transactions and contracts relating to information ownership and the exploitation of data. I have a particular interest and experience in projects relating to data, machine learning, AI, Internet of Things (IoT) and Open Source Software. I also have more than 15 years’ experience of working with regulatory issues relating to privacy and data protection.
