Who we are

We are qualified European patent attorneys with many years’ experience in drafting and prosecuting patent applications with a global perspective to ease prosecution in the most popular international markets.

The COPA team is a forward-looking, experienced and valuable team. Their understanding of the right patent strategy, their ability to immediately comprehend technical matters in detail and their ability to plan our next move mean that they have led us to many victories and ensured a strong patent position for us. Our cooperation with COPA through many years has been a pleasure, as have their fine service and always efficient effort.

COPA Copenhagen Patents is proud to combine individual skills into a team effort and houses some of the most esteemed individual patent attorneys in Denmark. We cover most areas of technology, but our main focus areas are biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, mechanics and electronics.

Recently, the team has been strengthened by the addition of European patent attorney Jacob Meyland, as well as patent attorneys Sune Højfeldt, Sylvia Yang and Rune Risgaard. The team also comprises European patent attorneys Mikkel Bender, Peter Kim Jensen, Steven Kitchen, Jacob Meyland and Axel Heimann.

What we do best

COPA Copenhagen Patents consistently aims to provide advice where quality is paramount. We consider our combination of expertise and years of experience, our genuine interest in entrepreneurship and our unconventional approach to be unique on the Danish market.

COPA Copenhagen Patents is highly experienced in handling oppositions and appeals. Team members frequently appear in EPO proceedings on behalf of clients in the wind turbine and pharmaceutical industries. Our key opposition and appeal specialists within mechanics and cleantech are Mr Kitchen and Mr Meyland, who regularly appear before these bodies. Mr Kitchen’s expertise is built on his experience as a patent director in a large Danish corporation. Further, our team has experience assisting clients in opposition cases in other major territories, such as China, Japan and the United States.

COPA Copenhagen Patents has advised client companies in several infringement and validity dispute cases before the Danish and Swedish courts. Scandinavian litigation work has become something of a speciality for the firm. Mr Bender and Mr Heimann are highly recognised for their tactical skills and frequently advise on high-profile pharmaceutical cases before the Danish and Swedish courts.

Mr Jensen specialises in Scandinavian patent litigation in the mechanical field. He is a member of the standing panel of expert judges of the Copenhagen Maritime and Commercial Court and chair of the Committee for the Appointment of Court-Appointed Experts.
