We’re excited to announce that Equinox has joined Questel!

Questel is one of the world’s leading providers of intellectual property solutions. With services encompassing the entire innovation and IP life cycle, Equinox will form a key component of its offering as a devoted IP management platform.

Equinox and Questel

Why Questel?

As a tech company, Questel brings the same expertise and passion for innovation in the IP industry as Equinox. Like us, the organisation values honesty and courtesy— we’re jointly committed to creating a supportive and fair business with services that help our subscribers succeed.

Questel offers a comprehensive software suite for searching, analysing, and managing inventions and IP assets. Its services include prior art searches, patent drafting, international filing, translation, and renewals.

“Equinox is experiencing strong traction in Europe and we are looking forward to bringing this state-of-the-art solution to law firms around the world. Alongside this acquisition, Questel is on track to become the global leader on the IP Management System market”

—Charles Besson, CEO of Questel


What this means for our subscribers

There will be minimal changes to Equinox IPMS in the short term. The system and any subscriptions will remain the same, and you can expect the usual services from our friendly team.

In the future, our subscribers will benefit from integration with the extensive catalogue of Questel services. These encompass tech solutions for every part of IP practice, so we’re excited to see how we can develop Equinox IPMS even further and create an even better system for our subscribers!

“Joining Questel gives us a fantastic opportunity to develop Equinox IPMS even further. We’ll be integrating with a host of other services from the Questel catalogue, some of which our subscribers may already use, and by sharing expertise we’ll be able to bring in impressive new developments.

“Our subscribers can still rely on the Equinox team for the same friendly support, and the system will continue to work as smoothly as always. We’re excited to see where Questel takes us!”

Sam Nicholson— Managing Director of Equinox

While this is a big moment for Equinox, we will continue to deliver the same quality software and services our subscribers rely on— it’s business as usual!
