Docketing Services: keeping track of your IP portfolio

Speak to our experts to learn more about how we can efficiently and cost effectively manage your IP portfolio, including all international formalities, and adapt our services to successfully deliver your requirements.

IP Data Validation

The validation of IP data is a complex process and it can be expensive to maintain a specialist internal team able to qualify it. If your information is not accurate, then your results won’t be either.

IP Outsourcing Services

Our experienced paralegals and patent, trademark and design attorneys can assist you with your IP portfolio, leaving your IP team free to focus on other tasks

Invoice Management

IP rights owners are required to regularly collaborate with various stakeholders and firms across the globe and this can result in the generation of a large number of invoices per month.

Ensuring the accuracy of your IP Data

Validation of IP Data remains a crucial part of any business that uses IP, and it is necessary to check that all information in your IP Management System is 100% correct. Qualifying and cross checking your data forms an integral part of that process ensuring that your IP rights are fully protected across all of your desired territories and helps to mitigate the risk that any of your IP rights will lapse. Zacco is one of Europe’s leading IP firms and can assist you throughout the IP Lifecycle from advising on claims and scope of protection required, to identifying jurisdictions, and providing in-house assistance and full portfolio management. Our specialised team of IP Data Validation experts keep up to date with all local requirements so that you don’t have to. Allowing us to assess and qualify IP data related to your portfolio can often be more cost effective than maintaining a team of experts in-house.

Zacco can provide in-house experienced paralegals and patent, trademark and design attorneys who have the capacity and capability to efficiently manage, support and administer your Intellectual Property portfolio. Accuracy is at the heart of everything we do and we have robust quality assurance processes in place to ensure we keep track of complex caseloads and maintain oversight of all formalities, relevant legislation and changing international requirements.

From SMEs to Fortune500s, we help hundreds of companies every year to manage their caseload more effectively and more cost efficiently.

We help you manage your IP-related invoices

Invoice matching is an integral part of any company’s accounts department and this can often be a complex, resource heavy and time-consuming process because it is necessary to match each invoice to supporting documents such as offers, purchase orders and agreements. Allowing Zacco to manage and assess your invoices can often reduce invoice processing costs and offers the potential to save both time and money by identifying incorrect invoices.

Trademark Renewals

Your Trademarks are an extension of your brand and its quality. Let us help you to secure their value.


We operate as part of one of Europe’s leading IP firms. Let us handle all of your IP Translation needs.

Changes in names and ownership require Recordals services

Whenever a company changes its name or if an IP right is purchased, exchanged or sold, this must be recorded with the relevant local IP authorities. National requirements vary when it comes to changing titles or ownership details and failure to record them properly can potentially result in the loss of your IP rights. Protect yourself accordingly and speak to one of our experts to learn more about how we can help you to reduce costs and manage your caseload more effectively.

Ensure your Trademark is renewed in time

Trademarks can define a brand’s international reputation and their recognition often indicates your commitment to consistency and quality. They can also lapse if not used and renewed regularly. We can help you to ensure that doesn’t happen. Although your Trademarked IP might be the same internationally, the rules surrounding it won’t be. We can help you to manage your Trademark portfolio, ensuring that renewals and reregistration process is stress-free and seamless.

Quality-assured IP Translation

Our Intellectual Property Translation team works solely with IP and can provide and keep track of all necessary translations throughout the IP rights lifecycle, including litigation and other enforcement procedures. We have extensive experience translating validations, patents, trademarks, litigation proceedings and other technical/legal text. We have full knowledge of formal requirements across multiple jurisdictions and can assist you offering a particular focus on multilingual consistency.


Validation is a time consuming but integral part of securing your granted IP Rights internationally. We can manage the entire process.

Convert European Patents into national rights

Validate your patent in every jurisdiction or territory where you require protection. Patent Prosecution takes many years but Validation often comes with a time limit. Every country has different formalities for successful Validation registration, each of which requires specialised knowledge and an understanding of local legislation and requirements. Zacco is one of Europe’s leading IP firms and can assist you throughout the IP Lifecycle from advising on claims and scope of protection required, to identifying jurisdictions, and providing in-house assistance with local language translations where necessary. Validation forms an integral part of that process ensuring that your IP rights are fully protected across all of your desired territories. With Zacco IP Services, our specialised team of Validation experts keep up to date with all local requirements so that you don’t have to. Allowing us to manage your Portfolio can often be more cost effective and improve Validation efficiency.
