Christina Berggren has extensive experience in the fields of intellectual property, media, marketing and IT law. After spending three years working in court, she entered the consulting world in 1994 and has since then worked in a patent firm, an accounting firm, and after 2003, at MAQS Law Firm. Christina helps companies and government agencies in their task to protect, commercialise, and enforce intellectual property rights such as trademarks, domain names, patents, designs and copyrights, and she assists companies with the regulatory issues relevant to their activity. In addition, she is active in the field of media law, in which she mainly assists print, digital and social-based outfits with issues related to, among others, copyrights, freedom of expression, ethics, data security, privacy, and special legislations such as the so-called 'BBS law', the Swedish law on responsibility for electronic bulletin boards.

Furthermore, Christina has worked closely with companies within the media sector, major domestic and international companies, including famous brands in fashion, cosmetics, food and beverages, retail, automotive and technology, and she has always been interested in witnessing their activities first hand. This has given her an important knowledge about these industries and international business.
