“Dynamic patent agency COPA excels at all things prosecution”: COPA receives top ranking with 5 attorneys listed!

June 19th, 2017

“Dynamic patent agency COPA excels at all things prosecution”: COPA receives top ranking with 5 attorneys listed!

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.”

COPA Copenhagen Patents ranked as Highly Recommended Firm in IAM Patent 1000

June 2nd, 2016

COPA Copenhagen Patents ranked as Highly Recommended Firm in IAM Patent 1000

We are very happy and proud to announce that we have just received top-tier status in the IAM Patent 1000 – The world’s leading patent professionals 2016. The Guide ranks our firm among Denmark’s highly recommended patent firms, and further ranks three of our European Patent Attorneys as recommended individuals. Over five months, IAM conducted in the region of 1,500 interviews with numerous attorneys at law, patent attorneys and in-house counsel to gather market intelligence on the leading players in the field.

The IAM Patent 1000 reasoning for placing us as a top-tier prosecution firm is as follows:

“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.”

The editorial and unbiased selection of leading patent attorneys is based on thorough and independent interviews and investigation within each country’s patent industry and among clients. IAM Patent 1000 “seek to produce the definitive list of the world’s leading patent experts on the basis of feedback received from those operating in the market”, the Research Editor writes.
