A Purpose-Driven Company

A well-controlled innovation contributes to improving living conditions and quality of life. Intellectual property plays a key role to ensuring that innovation is developed in a fair way, free from counterfeit and abuse of a dominant position. Questel’s mission is to allow Innovation to be developed in an efficient, secure, and sustainable way.

Questel works for the efforts of creators, innovators, and researchers to be rewarded. We imagine and design tomorrow’s software and services to help them enforce their rights and accurately value their intellectual assets. We make Intellectual Property technically and financially more accessible.

Behind its mission, Questel considers Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to be a broad-based movement that drives companies to take responsibility for the impact of their activities on customers, employees, communities, and the environment. Companies committed to corporate responsibility also agree to abide by international labor and human rights standards.
