> What Our Stakeholders Think <

CIPA plays a vital role in maintaining our position as a knowledge based economy and as a major jurisdiction for filing, maintaining and litigating IP rights. I value my links with the institute and the attorney professions as a whole.

Sir Colin Birss, Lord Justice of Appeal, Court of Appeal of England and Wales

CIPA does a really good job of representing the interests and needs of patent attorneys. They make us listen and understand and our decision-making is all the better for it.

Lord Smith, Chairman, Intellectual Property Regulation Board (IPReg)

CIPA has successfully navigated another year making full use of their impressive talents and creativity. CIPA’s members and leadership have been generous with their feedback on many aspects of EPO policy and practice, especially with regard to oral proceedings by vico.

Steve Rowan, Vice President, European Patent Office

CIPA is one of the EPO’s most valued partners and we deeply appreciate the input provided by its members. Our exchanges are always insightful, but in times of crisis, as we’ve seen during the pandemic, this close contact with CIPA has been crucial.

António Campinos, President, European Patent Office

DIT values CIPA’s advice and active support in International Trade Week and in preparing to negotiate IP chapters in the UK’s Free Trade Agreements with Australia, New Zealand and accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Antoinette Graves, Intellectual Property Team, Trade Policy, Department for International Trade (DIT)
