Minesoft has been awarded LegalTech Company of the Year, Internationally and in the UK, by ACQ5.  Minesoft provides trusted patent search, delivery and analysis tools to many Fortune 500/FTSE 100 corporations, law firms, academic institutions, and SMEs worldwide.

These awards are a testament to the success of PatBase 2.0, released by Minesoft and RWS in 2020, the largest ever update to the market-leading patent search database since its launch in 2003. Notably, the update allows for publication-level indexing and searching as well as family-based. The speed and capabilities of the search engine have also been further improved with almost instant data retrieval and analysis now possible, even when dealing with millions of documents. The Development team is constantly innovating and already this year, the company has announced a popular enhancement to Minesoft PAIR Alerts, now with added data from international patent offices and available daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly.


In addition to Minesoft receiving two awards from ACQ5, Co-Founder, Ophir Daniel has been named Gamechanger of the Year. Daniel has been a leading innovation driver for Minesoft solutions and the mastermind behind the new search engine.

Minesoft offers a variety of Intellectual Property information solutions, specialising in patent searching, IP document retrieval, patent analytics and competitive intelligence systems.

These accolades are a testament to the company’s ongoing work to meet the needs of its fast-growing global clientele. In 2020, Minesoft also had the honour of being recently named a Top 25 Global Brand to Watch in Business Connect India and a Top 10 Legal Tech Provider by MyTechMag.
