Zacco wins Nordic Firm of the Year 2023 at the Managing IP Awards!

22 June 2023

Zacco is proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Nordic Firm of the Year (Patent and Trademark Attorney Firms) 2023 by Managing IP. Having previously received the Scandinavian Firm of the Year award four times between 2016 and 2022, being recognised as the Nordic Firm of the Year represents another notable milestone for Zacco, having come together recently with the OpSec Group.

The award covers a combination of patent, trademark, digital branding and domain expertise, with the researchers acknowledging the contribution that each of these made to their final decision. This recognises the increasing importance of bringing together digital and online protection of IP with traditional intellectual property areas of patents and trademarks. Zacco was one of the pioneers of this approach and an early adopter in taking this integrated portfolio to our customers.

For Zacco, claiming the top spot amongst a strong field of IP firms in the Nordic market represents a significant validation of our philosophy and model. It provides independent confirmation of our commitment to quality and our own ability to innovate, as well as the close collaboration we foster between our colleagues and our clients. Having protected innovations for over 150 years, staying at the forefront means recognising and anticipating the IP needs of the future, as well as working with clients to help them develop an IP strategy that affords them competitive edge.

Mats Boström, General Manager of Zacco, commented, “This award is great news, but we also want to celebrate our people, without whom Zacco would not be the innovative powerhouse of experts that we are today. We are proud of the work that we deliver and we are proud of the many organisations we assist with turning their ideas into assets through a combination of guidance, support, and intervention.”

The result was announced at the Managing IP EMEA Annual Awards, which were held in London on Wednesday 21st June. Attending the ceremony and accepting the award on behalf of Zacco were Mats Boström, General Manager of Zacco, and Karin Kärvling Søholt, Director of Strategic Alliances. They were joined at the event by Dr. Selva Selvaratnam, Chief Executive Officer of OpSec Group.

Following the event, Selva added, “I want to congratulate and thank all our new colleagues at Zacco. This is a great win for a highly talented team and is definitely well deserved. For me, this represents an external acknowledgement of what Zacco is already able to achieve and what we aspire to achieve together for both current and future customers and colleagues.”

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our clients, for your feedback and for placing your trust in us, and to our peers in the IP industry for supporting our nomination. This is a proud moment that would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication, and insight that our teams are able to deliver to our clients every day. Congratulations go to all of our colleagues, who contribute in so many different ways to our client work from across our worldwide locations.
