Intellectual Property Portfolio Management

Most businesses hold an array of intellectual property rights such as trade marks, copyright works, designs, patents and domain names. However, far fewer actively manage these rights.

We conduct portfolio audits to help businesses identify their assets and then to manage them through use of our specialist IP asset management software. This ensures that all relevant deadlines such as renewal dates are not missed, disputes are tracked and that assignments, licences and coexistence agreements are linked to relevant rights.  Clients appreciate the ability to give them online access to our software enabling them to check progress and print off reports from their own personal devices.

Our services include:

  • specialist IP portfolio management software
  • free IP data upload
  • portfolio audits to identify gaps in IP coverage and potential cost savings due to redundant IP
  • automated deadline reminders
  • 24 hour client online access to their data
