We are Zacco

Little did Knut Yngve Zacco know that the firm he started in the 1870s would grow into one of the most prominent and trusted IP firms in Europe. It is this 150 years of working with innovative thinkers that has led to our 360° perspective on intellectual property.

We are an international team of experts, all of whom are passionate about technology, branding and innovation. We genuinely believe that the work we do with our clients can change the world, and our shared focus has always been a commitment to quality and a willingness to push beyond established norms to see what might be possible.

We offer an award winning approach to IP, and we want to make it more accessible to those who need it, and our 150 year history would suggest that we’re doing something right.

Star for Life Ukraine

Our Scandinavian roots provide a foundation for our values and an important part of these is supporting those around us. Our CSR projects have focused on working with organisations that support children, such as those working with education and training, often in the fields of technology, or projects that focus on mental health and attempts to relieve childhood trauma.

In 2022, we decided to start supporting Star For Life Ukraine, a Swedish non-profit organisation who are attempting to soften the trauma experienced by Ukrainian schoolchildren growing up in a warzone. Their work supports psychological wellbeing, mental health and self-esteem, while at the same time providing practical education and training in the form of IT skills development. Having previously supported Star for Life projects in South Africa, we trust the leadership team and we know that they will deliver life-changing support on the ground.
