Serviva GmbH – 15 years of success on the market 1

On March 9, 2006, Dr. Lars Zanzig and Dr. Raphael Jung founded Serviva GmbH, thus marking this year as the 15th anniversary of the company. The company’s initial focus on consulting services in the field of intellectual property management was quickly expanded to services in research, monitoring, as well as software distribution and integration. Offering excellent services with professional coworkers to a fair price determined the company’s philosophy from its very beginning and still holds truth today.

The new locations in Stuttgart and Munich as well as the subsidiary in Austria also enabled the continuous increase in the number of employees from initially four to more than 30 as of today.

“We are looking forward to more successful years with and for our customers!”


Dr. Lars Zanzig, Managing Director

Serviva – Experience Excellence.



The world of Intellectual Property (IP) has always been a pioneer in the global networking of people and ideas. The recent push towards decentralized and collaborative work is therefore only logical. Many professional tools are available for video conferencing and instant messaging communication, but does your IP management software in the company or law firm keep up with this pace of digitization? Does it also have the appropriate, secure technologies? Especially today, every department and every law firm needs a structure that enables decentralized work, e.g. from home, on the road or from several locations without complications, quality or security losses.

As a long-time partner of Patrix®, Serviva® has built up a wealth of experience in the field of remote working through a multitude of customer projects.

We know what you need to work well and efficiently. Suitably we offer the software tools that enable and support decentralized IP work.
