  • FICPI is the only international NGO whose membership consists entirely of IP attorneys in private practice.
  • As a result, the FICPI community is driven by a shared interest among like-minded people to promote common solutions and advocacy for private IP practitioners.
  • FICPI uniquely combines education and advocacy on topics around patents, trade marks and other forms of IP, with a focus on developing the professional excellence of individual members and the business and management aspects of their firms.
  • In addition, membership of the FICPI community creates shared business opportunities, rooted in the confidence of recommending any FICPI member in another country.


Membership in FICPI is open to qualified and experienced IP professionals in private practice, whose peers can confirm their qualifications and support their application for membership.


Applications for FICPI membership of FICPI in a country or region where there is a National Association  or  National or Regional Section should be made through that Association or Section. 

Candidates unable to join an established national or regional group are approved for membership by the Executive Committee, after existing FICPI members have had an opportunity to comment on the candidate’s suitability. 

We invite prospective members to complete the Membership Enquiry Form
