WILMINGTON, Del, October 6, 2015: Corporation Service Company® (CSC®),a global provider of business, legal, and digital brand services, today announced the appointment of Martin Brodén as senior intellectual property advisor for its Digital Brand Services division.

An experienced intellectual property expert, Brodén is well versed in protecting the IP of major global brands. Based in CSC's Stockholm, Sweden office, Brodén most recently served as senior in-house counsel for Inter IKEA Group (IKEA®) for six years, and before that, he coordinated patent and trademark litigation at AstraZeneca for some of its best-selling products.

His experience working as an in-house lawyer in retail and pharma coupled with Internet, data privacy, IT, and marketing knowledge make him uniquely qualified to continue CSC Digital Brand Services' mission to help clients protect and enforce their brand rights worldwide.

"The rollout of the ICANN New gTLD Program is requiring many brand holders to take a critical look at their monitoring and enforcement strategies in light of increased threats from cybersquatters and fraudsters," says CSC Digital Brand Services General Manager Mark Calandra. "We're thrilled to have Mr. Brodén join our team and leverage his extensive experience and insight to benefit our clients."

"I know the value of working with a team that can help monitor and enforce brand rights and I'm excited to use my experience to help brand owners in times of both great opportunity and challenge," Brodén says.

Brodén holds a master's degree in law from the University of Stockholm, Sweden and has a master's degree in public international law from the University of Nottingham. He is a member of the INTA Internet Committee and sits on its sub-committee for new gTLDs.
