Paragon Partners invests in future growth of IP provider Novagraaf

20 July 2017

Novagraaf was the first tenant of Centrum, taking up residence in July 2014. Their business has grown over the past three years, and earlier this year they entered into a collaboration with Paragon Partners, a Munich-based private equity company. This investment represents a major endorsement of Novagraaf’s plans to grow its business by investing further into its people, services and technologies, while meeting the changing needs of its global customer base.

Founded in 1888, Novagraaf is the world’s largest trademark filer and a major patent filer, managing more than one million intellectual property (IP) assets on behalf of customers, and representing many of the world’s major patent and trademark owners. Novagraaf works for some of the world’s leading IP owners, from ambitious start-ups to household names. The company is headquartered in Amsterdam, with offices throughout Europe, including London, Brussels, Paris and Geneva. Novagraaf also opened sales operations in China, Japan and the US in 2016.

Novagraaf’s Norwich Office is home to two of our patent attorneys, specialising predominantly in the Life Sciences and Ecotech: Dr Peter Wilson and Dr Oliver Harris. They are supported locally by paralegals Sally Wilson and Laura Wicks. For more information, see www.novagraaf.com .
