CPA Global Opens New Office in Silicon Valley

18 March 2013 - CPA Global, a leading intellectual property (IP) management and software specialist, has opened a new office in Silicon Valley. Located in Redwood City, the new office will support the IP needs of CPA Global’s more than 220 corporate and law firm clients in California; and adds to the Company’s other US offices in Alexandria, Minneapolis and Houston.

The West Coast, and Silicon Valley in particular, is a major centre for innovation,” said Peter Sewell, CPA Global’s Chief Executive Officer. “Opening an office in California brings us closer to our West Coast clients, and helps us better understand their needs and the unique characteristics of the region. This, in turn, will enable us to provide highly customised services and solutions to meet their individual requirements.” 

The Silicon Valley office announcement follows closely on from another important expansion into California for CPA Global. Last month the Company acquired First To File, the market leader in electronic document management systems, specifically tailored for the IP industry. First To File is headquartered in San Mateo, California, with additional operations in Boise, Idaho. These developments underline CPA Global’s commitment to California and the West Coast, and highlight the strong business potential the Company sees from the increasing demand for IP services in the region. 

Peter Sewell added: “As a global IP industry leader, we are delighted to establish a direct presence in a region where so much cutting-edge innovation is being developed. We aim to play a prominent role in the conversations driving the IP industry; and our Silicon Valley IP Leaders Seminar is the first of many industry events we will deliver in the region, aimed at sharing information and discussing issues impacting IP professionals.” 

CPA Global is a leading intellectual property (IP) management and IP software specialist, and an international provider of outsourced legal services. With offices across Europe, the United States and Asia Pacific, CPA Global supports many of the world’s best known corporations and law firms with a range of IP and broader legal services. 

Founded in Jersey, Channel Islands in 1969, CPA Global today employs more than 1,500 people, serving clients’ needs in 200 jurisdictions through its own offices and an extensive agent network.
