IP Management and Strategic Counselling

Obtaining a patent, registering a trademark or securing another form of intellectual property protection should not be pursued in isolation. The IP portfolio of a business must be created and managed strategically and cost effectively. We work with our clients in several ways to assist in this area. Our first step is taking the time to understand our clients’ businesses. With that understanding we can then assist our clients to establish priorities and develop strategies and timelines in the development of their IP portfolios and, importantly, to leverage their IP portfolios to generate revenue and add value to their businesses.
