COPA Copenhagen Patents has been rated as ”Highly Recommended Firm patent prosecution” once again by IAM 1000, 2017.

“Still a relatively new arrival on the market – having only cut the ribbon in 2012 – dynamic patent agency COPA excels at all things prosecution. Handling life sciences, cleantech, mechanics and electronics mandates with meticulous care, the group makes particularly light work of hotly contested oppositions and appeals. These are a specialty of tactical sage Steven Richard Kitchen, who recently oversaw a streak of nine consecutive opposition and appeal wins on behalf of LM Wind Power. Mechanical engineering authority Peter Kim Jensen has a similarly pre-eminent standing in this field and shares almost 30 years of wisdom as a teacher at the Danish Institute for IPR Training. Students at the institute also benefit from the insight of Anders Sandgaard, whose commercial acumen is a boon for telecommunications, medical device and renewable energy players. Founder Mikkel Bender fronts the life sciences team and has a flair for devising bulletproof patent strategies and providing stellar litigation support. The driving force behind an influx of new prosecution and opinion instructions in the life sciences, IAM Patent 1000 debutant Nicka Kirstejn has a keen appreciation of the needs of universities and early-stage ventures.” IAM 1000 (2017).

“In a short timeframe, COPA has established itself as an absolute leader in its field.” Although it only opened its doors in 2012, it already enjoys top-tier status in the IAM Patent 1000. The firm can prosecute with the best of them, but really comes into its own on oral proceedings before the EPO and the Danish Patent and Trademark Office. For LM Wind Power, which owns one of the wind turbine industry’s most important patent families, Steven Richard Kitchen shepherded a recent appeal to successful close. “Extraordinary top-level abilities” put the mechanics and software divisions leader in the guide this year. Life sciences don Mikkel Bender has been running rings around opponents in oral proceedings. “Quick to grasp complex matters and understand key issues”, he combines a “thorough technical understanding with a strong appreciation of the legal side”, and is “one of the best in Denmark – and in the Nordic region”. Peter Kim Jensen reaches similar heights in his engineering-focused practice. Unparalleled knowledge of patent infringement is his calling card and something he earns rave reviews for: “He appreciates his clients’ needs and has a brilliant understanding of the technology. He knows how to support a litigation and how to be incredibly convincing.” IAM 1000 (2016).

The awards, among the world’s most prestigious, recognise outstanding work in IP over the past year, and COPA Copenhagen Patents are extremely proud to win this award after having been shortlisted with four other highly recognised Danish IP firms.

“Our winner was only formed in May 2012, but has rapidly become one of the country’s leading IP firms, and has recently added widely respected Peter Kim Jensen.” Managing Intellectual Property (2014).

“Established in 2012, COPA breathed fresh life into the Danish market and has quickly gained a reputation as a dynamic provider of custom-built patenting solutions. Patrons profitably mine the ensemble’s rich seam of expertise within the life sciences, leaning particularly on master biologist, Mikkel Bender – “one of the best in the industry”. For those with engineering technologies, the “truly brilliant” Peter Kim Jensen is a go-to authority.” IAM 1000 (2014).
