Who we are
Elevating the practice of Intellectual Property Management.
At Clairvolex, we bring innovative technology and proven processes together to offer solutions informed at every step by sophisticated domain expertise and years of in-the field-experience.
To help businesses build valuable Intellectual Property portfolios by merging deep subject matter expertise with next-generation software solutions.
A business environment where Intellectual Property professionals are empowered to transcend process to focus on maximizing the value of IP portfolios.
Our Company Values are qualities we strive to embody in the pursuit of our Mission - every day, and at every level of our organization.
We believe in innovation toward a purpose. Vision instills our work with bold ideas; a practical lens ensures a laser focus on strategic outcomes - both carefully balanced through our approach to working with customers, and in building our own practice and technology.
Having mastery of our craft lends us the credibility to act as leaders in managing and developing Intellectual Property. A deep and proven track record navigating the complexities of IP Management means we speak with earned authority - allowing us to operate with an uncommon blend of fluency, speed, and accuracy.
We bring our knowledge and experience to bear at every turn - but we also know that the best decisions and strategies are made through collaboration and bringing together a diversity of perspectives. As much as we value decisiveness and action, we also believe in the importance of listening - to ourselves, to our partners and customers, and to what AI-led intelligence can tell us.
From day one, Clairvolex has believed that the right blend of expertise, practical experience, and an eye toward innovation is what sets us apart. Following over 10 years of expert-led Intellectual Property Services delivery, we began to see clear opportunities where AI and ML technologies could be applied to truly transform the IP practice for many of our customers.
Partnering closely with several flagship customers, we brought together a team combining Silicon Valley startup know-how and seasoned and top credentialed experts in the IP space to build a software suite that could accelerate more manual functions of the IP process without compromising on rigor or quality.
Today, we offer hybrid solutions to our customers — leveraging our IP Services expertise in combination with market leading AI-ML technologies to offer strategic and targeted support — where our customers need it.
Clairvolex is built and led by career IP professionals and people passionate about IP. As we’ve grown, the founding team’s IP subject matter expertise has been augmented by business managers, ML technology experts, experienced product development teams, paralegal specialists, patent engineers, analysts, Ph. D scientists, and committed corporate function managers and staff. Guided and mentored by an eminent group of Board Members and Advisors, we continue to scale Clairvolex products and services into an innovative, industry leading IP platform.
