About Us

Zacco in short

Zacco is a modern, full-service intellectual property consultancy and we have 150 years’ experience of innovative thinking. Since 2016, we have been awarded Scandinavian Firm of the Year.

We offer an all-embracing 360° perspective on intellectual property: From patent filing, trademark registration and design protection to software development, digital brand protection, cyber security and portfolio management.

Today, it is not always enough to secure your intellectual property by means of patents, registrations of designs, copyrights and trademarks alone. Securing your IP digitally against data theft and fraud and keeping up with rapidly evolving data protection laws and technology is increasingly important.

By combining the traditional IP disciplines with cyber security, software development and digital brands, we take care of your ideas, innovations, data, identity – and all of your other intangible assets that you can’t put your finger on. We protect them, give you ownership and make them yours to keep – now and in the future.

We call it 360° perspective on intellectual property.

  • We are more than 500 employees and have experts in all aspects of intellectual property, including a large number of experienced Patent, Trademark and Design Attorneys as well as Attorneys at Laws and Paralegals, IT specialists and Software Developers.
  • We have almost 200.000 registered IP rights in our portfolio and we handle a vast number of applications, patent validations and renewals every year.
  • We have a long history as an international IP consultancy dating back to 1870: After a merger in 2001 – between Hofman-Bang in Denmark, Stockholm Patentbyrå in Sweden and Bryns Patentkontor in Norway – the company adopted the name Zacco after one of its founders, Knut Yngve Zacco. In July 2009, Zacco merged with the long-standing and well-known IP consulting firm Albihns, forming the company Albihns.Zacco. In September 2012, the name was changed to Zacco.
