The move will enable CPA Global to better serve its growing number of corporate and law firm clients in Taiwan, and to help meet the increasing demand for IP management software and services in this key innovation market, and more broadly across the Asia Pacific region.

Located in the landmark Taipei 101 tower in the city’s Xinyi central business district, the new office provides local client service and sales support, backed by the full resources of CPA Global’s Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Hong Kong as well as the Company’s extensive worldwide operations.

In addition to Taipei and Hong Kong, CPA Global’s Asia Pacific offices include Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Sydney and Noida (New Delhi); and the Company plans to open an office in Beijing shortly.

Commenting on the importance of the Taiwanese market, Marcos Antunes, CPA Global’s General Manager, Asia Pacific, said: "Taiwan is a market of tremendous innovation and home to some of the world’s most progressive, forward-thinking organisations, who need to manage and protect their IP rights locally, regionally and internationally. As a result, we are seeing increasing demand for high quality IP management services and software, both from law firms and from the corporate clients they serve."

CPA Global’s Taiwanese clients, such as AU Optronics Corporation (AUO), one of the world’s leading providers of optoelectronic solutions, have welcomed the establishment of the CPA Global office in Taiwan.

Antunes added: "It is important for our clients in Taiwan to have local on-the-ground support, and we can now provide that more effectively through our Taipei office. By being closer to our clients, we can better understand and anticipate their changing IP management requirements and respond quickly to meet their needs."

CPA Global’s Taipei office is headed by Emily Wang, a Taiwanese national, who has been leading the Company’s business development in Taiwan for the past three years. To mark the office opening, CPA Global will be hosting an IP Leaders’ Forum in Taipei on October 31. The Forum, to be held at Le Meridien Taipei, will focus on the topic, "Managing IP Portfolios: Cost vs Return". It will feature interactive panel discussions with senior members of Taiwan’s IP community and other industry experts on the challenges and strategies for cost effective IP portfolio management.
