During the spring 2018, Zacco acquired the activities of the Herning-based patent consultancy Patender and, as of January 01, 2019, Zacco has taken over the activities of the well-known Danish IP consultancy Patent Nord ApS. The brand Patent Nord will continue to thrive, however now under the name of Patent Nord Powered by Zacco.
Patent Nord was founded by Hans Harding 24 years ago. Over the last half decade, Patent Nord has found strong momentum and grown to become a significant player in the highly vibrant industry of Danish SMEs. As a recognition of this, Patent Nord was awarded the Danish Gazelle prize in 2016.
Zacco also welcomes Patent Nord’s Niels Harding as Partner and Area Manager - DK North. Niels will be based in one of our three offices in Jutland, and Niels will continue to act as the well-known point of entry for current and new clients of Patent Nord.
Patent Nord, as well as Zacco, is confident that Zacco’s unique offerings within IP will strengthen and further expand the current offerings of Patent Nord.
- The acquisition strengthens Zacco’s presence not only in Jutland, but also in Denmark, and we look forward to assisting almost 200 new clients from a local perspective with our all-embracing 360° approach to IP, says Regional Director of Zacco Denmark and Sweden South, Hans C. Nielsen.
Zacco is a modern, consultancy driven company – we have evolved from a classic IP bureau into a modern and all-embracing IP consultancy supporting our clients throughout the challenges and opportunities posed by the new digital agenda. Through broadening of our scope of our services during the recent years, we are now able to apply a 360° perspective on Intellectual Property; the core of Zacco remains on Intellectual Property but is now uniquely supported by high-end expertise within cyber security, software and digital brand and tech law.
