Anaqua opens its first German location in Cologne

Anaqua, a leading provider of management software for intellectual property and related services with headquarters in the USA, opens its first German office in Cologne. Since 2015 the Anaqua team has doubled in size to over 250 employees worldwide. After London, Verona and Pau (France), Cologne is now the company’s fourth location in Europe.

“Expanding our presence in Germany is very important for us,” says Bob Romeo, Anaqua’s CEO. “With this we are linking the development of localized software solutions with even better support for our customers throughout the entire German-speaking region. This worldwide leading center for innovation has a tremendous need for innovative, strategic software for intellectual property.”
In recent months Anaqua has significantly developed the company as well as its technologies. The visualization of IP data and processes as well as readily available analyses of in-house and third-party data are among the requirements most urgently needed in modern IP departments. With the new HyperView™ Technology and by acquiring the analytics company AcclaimIP, Anaqua is integrating IP intelligence to a high degree into its unified platform.

Furthermore Anaqua recently announced a strategic alliance with Wolters Kluwer’s Corsearch, a worldwide leading company for brand and trademark information solutions. The initial phase of this alliance will include integrating Anaqua software and the Corsearch® brand and trademark data. Corsearch provides the world’s leading reliability and protection solutions as well as tools for trademark and brand professionals across the globe.

Michael Klein, Director of Sales and Sales Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, has already begun establishing Anaqua in the German-speaking region: “I have gotten to know Anaqua as the most innovative and dynamic provider of IP solutions. Our goal is to establish Anaqua in the German-speaking region as the central IP platform for companies and law firms. At the same time, customer orientation and customer proximity as well as practical advancements of technologies are paramount.”
