We see a big difference in how IP is handled among companies. Today it is more often a management question, which it should be. IP assets are often connected with high values and these could also potentially generate large incomes. As a result, the consultancy side of our business is getting closer to strategy and management consultancy where it is closely linked to the companies’ overall business strategies and development.
We are very happy with the expansion and that Herleif Ulstein is going to lead our Ålesund office. He has an extensive international IPR experience from Stokke as well as a great network in the area. His rare combination of technological, commercial and legal competence, which he has built up during his long career, will be of great value to our clients.
We are very happy that Mark Meijer has joined Zacco. Mark’s extensive experiences from leading professional services companies in an international environment will be of great value to us on our way towards building a successful IP business in the Benelux area. Mark is a dynamic person and strong team builder, and we are convinced he is the right person for us to lead Zacco into the future in the Netherlands.
