As global challenges and opportunities accelerate, the value of innovation has never been greater. IP professionals therefore have a critical role in defining our future - managing and nurturing great ideas. But today the IP ecosystem - which comprises people, information, technology and services - is not keeping pace. This is frustrating progress and reducing the value IP can add.
At CPA Global, we recognise that our industry is fragmented. That’s why we’re focused on digitizing the IP ecosystem, reinforcing connections between people, and giving IP professionals the sophisticated solutions they need to succeed.
We make it possible for IP to move at the speed of ideas.
Our history in the Nordics dates back to 1978 and the Swedish IP services and software provider Patrafee, which was founded by a group of IP law firms, just like CPA Global a decade earlier. Patrafee also developed the IP management software Patrawin, often in cooperation with its founding law firms. CPA Global acquired Patrafee in 2014. The Swedish based and forefront IP software provider Ipendo, founded in 2004, was acquired by CPA Global in 2011. Both Ipendo and Patrawin are now integrated parts of CPA Global’s product portfolio.
