IP Outsourcing Services

Outsource your IP portfolio and reduce your costs while maintaining flexibility

There are hundreds of countries where you can get your IP protected, many of which require adherence to local specific regulations or translations. Keeping track of a large IP portfolio can quickly become incredibly time consuming and expensive, especially if you need to constantly update local requirements within each jurisdiction.

Thanks to our large volumes, extensive global network and efficient workflows, we can help you to reduce your costs by managing you IP portfolio. From single projects to ongoing management, we have the capacity and capability to handle requirements of any size, securely and confidentially. During times of urgency, we are also able to offer expedient handling, ‘fast-tracking’ the process without compromising on quality or consistency. Although many companies use us to manage their entire portfolios, we offer complete customisation and flexibility dependant on your needs. Pricing is competitively based on the size of your portfolio, and therefore the number of people required to manage it effectively.

Our expert paralegals and patent, trademark and design attorneys are already successfully managing incredibly complex international caseloads and our clients often see us as a significantly more cost efficient solution than operating the same level of service complexity in-house. With Zacco, you will have a single point of contact who will handle everything internally but, because of our extensive team, you will have access to our in-house IP experts 24/7, offering full portfolio coverage at all times.

Insource an IP professional and let us help!

We can assist with temporary or more permanent ‘insourcing’ requirements, such as for a larger than expected workload or for parental leave cover, providing on-premises paralegals and experienced patent, trademark and design attorneys who will work solely on behalf of your organisation. For the limited number of countries where we don’t operate directly, we also have a comprehensive network of trusted, vetted and quality assured local partners, all of whom have been working with Zacco long term and who offer the same high level of consistency and quality that you can expect from us.

Make use of Zacco’s 150 years of experience

Operating as part of Zacco, one of Europe’s leading IP firms, we have the ability to provide outsourced paralegals and patent, trademark and design attorneys who can advise on portfolio value expansion, IP monitoring and enforcement, prosecution, litigation and general IP Strategy. By allowing us to manage your portfolio you potentially have access to over 500 in-house experts across all areas of Intellectual Property, including the latest thinking and upcoming legal clarifications. Zacco manages hundreds of IP portfolios internationally and our experienced paralegals have a detailed knowledge and oversight of protections or documentation required in each jurisdiction or territory. We have up to date awareness of all forthcoming changes in legislation and we have access to in-house European patent, trademark and design attorneys who can assist in exploring potential opportunities open to you as well as reducing costs by identifying administration or rights that may no longer be suitable for your needs.

Full transparency and quality assurance across the entire IP lifecycle

We offer full transparency throughout the process so you will always be able to quickly identify where your portfolio stands at each stage, whether that is with registration, proofing validation, translation or docketing as well as other services available. Our outsourcing service is already responsible for managing the IP portfolios of companies ranging from SMEs to Fortune500s and we have robust and comprehensive quality assurance processes in place. We also offer full process liability, so you can rest assured that your portfolio management is in responsible and capable hands.
