About us


Trusted by attorneys since 2008

In 2016, two leading players in the IP administrative services industry—Valipat and Envoy—merged to create a new company with a shared vision. Today we provide innovative administrative services to over 700 patent agencies, law firms and corporate in‑house IP departments throughout the world.


Our history

Valipat SA, one of the industry leaders in the field of European patent validations, PCT national/regional phase entries and IP recordals, and Envoy International Limited, a specialist provider of IP renewals and annuities services, joined forces in 2016 to become a global leader in IP administrative services.

Valipat was originally founded in 2008 by the Gevers IP Firm and became independent and privately owned in 2012. Envoy was founded in 2008 and managed by its owner, David Kennedy.

The merger enables Valipat and Envoy to enhance their current offering while combining forces to develop innovative solutions for customers. Valipat and Envoy are well aligned in strategic vision and culture with a common goal of acting as an extension of our customer’s team, helping to reduce costs and save time without compromising on quality.
