IP support services from experts for experts

PAVIS GmbH is a service provider in the field of intellectual property (IP management) operating worldwide. For more than 40 years we have been a reliable and competent partner for patent agencies, law firms and corporate IP departments with large IP portfolios.

Innovative technical solutions, well-established procedures and a high degree of automation have made us into one of the most efficient and reliable IP management service providers. We focus on patent annuity payments, EP validations and trademark renewals. We also handle recordals of changes to patents, trademarks and designs.

In 2020, our subsidiary PAVIS Payments GmbH was officially approved as a regulated payment services provider by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Through PAVIS Payments GmbH, we are the first IP services provider to carry out payments of fees for intellectual property rights in accordance with the requirements of the EU Payment Services Directive (PSD II).

PAVIS joined the Questel group in 2021. As a global IP solutions provider, Questel has built an integrated end-to-end platform of software and services to meet the needs of corporations and law firms across the IP lifecycle. PAVIS is the centre of excellence for patents within the Questel Group. Moving forward, the companies’ shared vision is to further integrate knowledge and technology in order to offer clients a new way of managing their IP through tech-enabled delivery of services.
