The story of IPS Irsch AG’s success began in 2005 when Intellectual
Property Services was founded as a sole trader. In 2013 it became a
limited company (GmbH) of the same name registered in Frauenfeld. That
marked the start of a highly dynamic growth trajectory which soon turned
the law firm into a renowned international player. The company has
since been transformed into a stock corporation (AG). The organic growth
of the last few years has been permanently strengthened with the
acquisition of G&A IP AG in Schaffhausen canton, enabling the range
of expertise to be extended once more. IPS Irsch AG is now not only the
largest patent law firm in Thurgau, but also already in second place in
The capability of the Frauenfeld patent law firm and the quality of the services it provides have played a large part in its entrepreneurial success. Right from the start the company has invested in modern, efficient and secure infrastructure and built up a fully integrated IT system, thereby laying down a marker both nationally and internationally. That puts the patent law firm IPS Irsch AG well ahead of its competitors. Efficiency has been continuously enhanced, while security has been fundamentally improved. This ensures the company is also much better prepared for unforeseen events and can overcome additional challenges smoothly to a consistently high standard. As regards the staff, integrity is valued highly alongside specialist qualifications. Both companies attach great importance to an inspiring and appreciative staff and corporate culture and have committed themselves to acting sustainably and responsibly. In doing so they have laid the foundation for a relationship with clients that is based on trust and cooperation.
The growth of the last few years has now been permanently strengthened with the acquisition of G&A IP AG in Neuhausen am Rheinfall. What this means for clients is a clear gain in the range of expertise and security, ensuring a real boost to innovation for G&A IP AG. Both law firms will utilize the resulting synergy potential for the benefit of their clients. The management teams are convinced that this model has a future: The opportunity to consolidate market presence and improve security for clients with considerable flexibility and independence under the umbrella of a strong partner is also clearly an attractive option for further growth.
