Several of the firm’s associates and partners lecture at leading IP institutions – for example, at the Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) and the Danish Institute for IP Rights Training – and as part of university courses.
In recruiting its professionals, the firm has targeted some of the most renowned European patent attorneys in the region, as well as highly qualified associates with the clear potential to pass the examination. Clients consistently praise Inspicos for its ability to serve clients in an efficient and highly professional manner.

In recent years the firm has achieved remarkable results within a variety of technical fields, from life sciences to physics, including immunology, antibody technology, food ingredient technology, organic and inorganic chemistry, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, medical devices, wind power, wireless communication, software and mechanics.
