About Equinox IPMS

Launched in 2006, Equinox IPMS is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, all-in-one IP management tool that is relied on by law firms worldwide to streamline IP portfolio management. Designed to make life easier for IP professionals, the system optimizes case and document management processes to enable users to build efficiencies in client communications, fee management, and reporting.

Considered the best in its class, the Equinox IPMS is as straightforward to use as it is powerful, making it a perfect fit with Questel’s suite of IPMS solutions. Questel supports companies and institutions with a wide range of software modules that enable them to achieve high-performance IP portfolio management for both patent and trademark assets. Depending on their individual needs, customers can choose between an out-of-the-box IPMS or a highly tailored solution built on Salesforce.

By acquiring Equinox IPMS, Questel can now provide law firms with a dedicated software solution. More broadly, however, the acquisition represents another significant milestone in the Questel group’s evolution.

By increasing its focus and investment in strategic IP services and solutions for law firms, Questel has already become the preferred partner of many law firms worldwide in recent years. This includes supporting hundreds of renowned law firms around the globe with innovative and cost-effective solutions for patent translation projects, IP renewals, and trademark searches and watches.

Equinox has grown substantially in recent years with its team of 36 employees now supporting almost 250 clients in 25 countries. By joining the Questel group, the company and software are now poised to expand further internationally, benefiting from a global sales team based in 30 countries.
