About Us

Committees


CIPA committees give members a platform to leverage their combined expertise and experience to advance the patent attorney profession and promote intellectual property (IP) matters on a global stage.

CIPA committees influence UK government and international policy regarding IP. Members liaise with business, media, academia and international organisations to increase IP awareness and promote the interests of members at home and aboard. Committees also manage qualifications, maintain professional standards and advise on best practice.
