Zacco – New Cluster Member
We are pleased to welcome Zacco, a modern full-service intellectual property consultancy company, to the cluster.
Zacco Norway AS is part of Zacco, one of the largest intellectual property (IP) firms in Europe with more than 500 dedicated experts in all aspects of intellectual property, including a large number of experienced patent-, trademark and design attorneys as well as attorneys at law and paralegals, IT specialists and software developers.
– Zacco offers a broad range of IP services to science communities and businesses in all areas of technology, and provides assistance related to cyber security and protection of digital brands as well, says Hans Langan, Senior Partner in Zacco. – Our firm has a proven track record in assisting clients in drafting, prosecuting and defending patents, trademarks and designs, he adds.
Zacco’s patent consultants and attorneys regularly provide freedom-to-operate analyses and infringement opinions. According to Zacco it is not always enough to secure your intellectual property by means of patents, registrations of designs, copyrights and trademarks alone.
– By combining the traditional IP disciplines with cyber security, software development and digital brands, we take care of our customers ideas, innovations, data, identity – and all of the other intangible assets that they want to protect, says Langan.
Zacco Norway has been serving clients all over the country for several decades, before 2001 as Bryns Patentkontor. Today, Zacco has offices in Oslo, Sarpsborg and Ålesund, and meeting facilities in Bergen and Stavanger.
Zacco knows Norwegian industry very well, and can demonstrate extensive technical experience within such fields as oil and gas exploration, naval engineering, aquaculture, and offshore wind technology.
– We look forward to joining the GCE Ocean Technology cluster, says Langan, – and while we believe that our services are useful for the cluster members, we also see our membership as an opportunity to broaden our knowledge and establish new relationships, Langan concludes.
Zacco is a modern, full-service intellectual property consultancy and we have 150 years of experience of innovative thinking.
Since 2016, we have been awarded Scandinavian IP Firm of the Year.
