Ideas are your
most valuable asset
CPA Global is the world’s leading Intellectual Property (IP) Management and Technology company. We serve over 10,000 customers and connect millions of global IP users every day.
Like our customers, we too are innovators, bringing to market a pipeline of new ways to manage IP more efficiently, minimize risk and make better decisions through revolutionary technology and platform application.
Our Global Presence
23 offices, across 4 continents and 12 countries, our technology and services are underpinned by an outstanding global team of over 2000 people.
Founded in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1969, our heritage began in providing patent renewal services to our founding law firms.
Over the last 40 years, the market for IP services has grown consistently and we have partnered our customers during this time, through expansion into Asia and the US since the 1970s, offering trademarks services since the 1980s, and by providing essential IP software since 2000.
In 2012, CPA Global was acquired by private equity firm Cinven. This created an exciting opportunity to strengthen our footprint in mainland Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, further accelerating our growth.
Since then, we have successfully delivered on our shared strategy, investing significantly in software and technology-enabled service development, and adding patent information and analytics to our product suite. In 2015, we bought premier US-based IP intelligence software provider Innography further enhancing our technology and analytics capabilities, and strengthening our vision to offer end-to-end IP support across the idea lifecycle.
We are redefining innovation and IP management in our industry through The IP Platform™, our new technology platform for innovation and IP management – offering a unified and connected view of all IP information, workflows and tasks.
CPA Global and its shareholders will continue to evaluate a range of strategic options for the company, including a potential sale or IPO, over the medium term.
