September 22, 2010 – Fairview Research has acquired IFI Patent Intelligence from Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions. IFI is the leading producer of value-added U.S. patent databases and indexing services.

PRNewswire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Fairview Research Acquires Patent Database Leader IFI.” This acquisition allows Fairview to augment its existing data standardization technologies and broaden its intellectual property expertise.

Fairview anticipates maintaining the high level of customer service and support that IFI customers expect, with no lapse in service as a result of the change of ownership, and believes customers will benefit from the combined strengths of the two organizations.
