Intellectual Property Strategy

In our experience, regardless of the preferred route adopted for the commercialisation of a disruptive technology, a cohesive and comprehensive IP strategy can be the difference between success and failure.

There is no one size fits all IP strategy or protection approach. Patents, copyright, industrial designs, know-how and trademarks vary in importance across the diverse industries and technologies we work with.

As part of any engagement process we work to understand the development stages of each company and technology with a view to implementing the appropriate IP strategy for optimum protection. If, in our opinion, there is a deficiency in IP protection or strategy we work closely with our clients and their counsel to address the issues.

This essential, hands on IP process has a direct and positive effect on our clients ability to raise funds, license their technology and ultimately obtain optimum value if and when they wish to be acquired.
