We are very happy and proud to announce that we have once again received top-tier status in the IAM Patent 1000 – The world’s leading patent professionals 2017. Also this year, the Guide ranks our firm among Denmark’s highly recommended patent firms, and five of our European Patent Attorneys are singled out for particular praise.
The IAM guide identifies the leading patent professionals in jurisdictions across the world and is a result of months of detailed research involving interviews and surveys with thousands of private practice lawyers and attorneys. The named practitioners have received high praise and recommendations from both colleagues and clients alike.
The IAM Patent 1000 reasoning for placing us as a top-tier prosecution firm is as follows:
“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.”
