FICPI is committed to supporting its members in private practice and bringing value to intellectual property in a wider sense.
We are passionate about our aims, which can be summarised as follows:
- Enhancing international cooperation within the profession of IP attorneys in private practice, promoting the exchange of information and facilitating business relations between members.
- Maintaining the dignity of our members and the standards of the profession of IP attorneys in private practice on an international scale.
- Expressing FICPI’s opinions with regard to newly proposed international and national legislation that is of general concern to the profession; and defending the interests of our members and their clients in maintaining a vigorous and effective system of intellectual property protection, with well-qualified IP attorneys in private practice to make that system work.
- Promoting training and continuing education of our members and others interested in intellectual property by organising regular international meetings, as well as local and regional ad hoc programmes.
