We interview Caitlin Kavanagh, Marketing Manager at Minesoft, to find out more about the global patent solutions company and why they’re interested in meeting FICPI members at the 2022 World Congress.


Caitlin Kavanagh of MinesoftFirstly, our thanks for choosing to sponsor FICPI’s World Congress this year. What prompted you to become a sponsor of the FICPI Congress?

Minesoft works with IP attorneys around the world. Clients often suggest conferences they’d like to see us at as it’s a great opportunity to inform people about new product development and meet people face-to-face – especially post-Covid! One of our clients in Brazil, Lobo de Rizzo Advogados, reached out to us at the end of 2021 and asked if we might be interested in becoming a sponsor of FICPI and after doing some research online, it was clear that we would be a great fit.


Why were you particularly attracted to FICPI?

The biggest factor that drew us to FICPI was the global community. Our clientele is completely international so a community with members from 80 countries is very attractive to us. In addition to this, the aim of the conference to provide opportunities to build strong relationships by connecting groups of people who share common goals, concerns and a commitment to quality is like our own company ethos.

Minesoft strives to provide high-quality online patent solutions that help drive innovation. With this in mind, we are involved in the ASPI program administered by WIPO which gives patent offices and academic and research institutions in developing countries free or low-cost access to our solutions.


Introduce your business and tell us what's particularly relevant to the FICPI audience of international independent IP attorneys: 

Minesoft has a reputation of providing industry-leading service to our ever-growing list of global clients. We are the trusted patent information solutions provider for national patent offices, professional search firms, patent attorney firms, academic institutions, and many Fortune 500/FTSE 100 companies around the world.

We have great relationships with our customers, which is exemplified by the fact that Minesoft has one of the highest customer retention rates in the intellectual property industry. Innovation occurs all around the world, so our patent search platforms and convenient legal solutions fit the needs of global users in all industries.
