With the expertise and practical experience provided by our membership and our participation as observers and advisors on many national and international platforms, FICPI is ideally placed to keep abreast of new developments, to keep you informed, to make an impact on future legislation and to ensure that your concerns as private practitioners are heard.
FICPI members have assisted in the drafting of IP laws and treaties. We offer well balanced opinions on the interpretation of existing laws and the implementation of newly proposed international, regional or national legislation and practice guidelines which are rooted in a wide range of different experiences and knowledge of the business needs of the IP system.
Our views are highly respected by the IP authorities because they have come to appreciate that we speak with the experience of the entire free profession, in support of an effective IP system for all users, owners and third parties alike. The independent practitioner is a key part of the IP system; FICPI represents that part.
