About Us

Mission Statement

Our mission at Darts-ip is to help legal and business professionals achieve more with intellectual property cases. In a globalized and digitalized world, we thought it was crazy how much effort was needed to find relevant cases, how inaccessible certain information was and how hard it was to get a global high level overview.  Previously only a fraction of the valuable information contained in cases had been used and had only been used in a very limited way.


“ As an IP lawyer, 15 years ago, I was frustrated that no dedicated tool existed to find cases that matter and to gain global insights.  I started to collect my own cases in Excel and subsequently promote my tool to fellow IP lawyers.  That’s how it all started.”

Jean-Jo Evrard, founder of Darts-ip 


We are a dynamic team of 220 people around the world.  At darts-ip everyone takes ownership of a part of the business and contributes at creating a fun, proactive, and professional environment. 

Decisions are made fast with a ‘can-do’ approach and team work is paramount.


Founded in 2006, Darts-ip is a privately held organization. We have grown our business organically, without the help of any external investors. All of Darts-ip shareholders are actively managing the company.
