Darts-ip

Our mission at Darts-ip is to help IP professionals do more with caselaw. We want to fundamentally transform the way in which people search, find and use case law.

In a globalised and digitalised world, we think it is crazy how much effort it takes to find relevant case law, how inaccessible certain information is and how hard it is to get a global overview.
Previously, only a fraction of the valuable information contained in case law had been used and had only been used in a very limited way.

We want to make such an impact that it changes the way IP professionals work.
We’re here to reinvent the game.
