seeks always to build strong two way relationships
with clients as this is vital to delivering value.
Through close collaboration and trusting partnership
is able to undertake important and commercially
sensitive assignments. Delivering greater value
from knowledge takes many forms apart from intellectual
property licensing or patent
licensing. We have extensive practical commercial
experience in many key areas and have successfully
undertaken assignments for major UK and international
businesses and much smaller companies.
We are comfortable with undertaking 'one-off' assignments or with providing a retained service with appropriate resources to match the level required.
Examples of the types of assignments covered include for example:
- Undertaking intellectual property audits
and developing IP portfolios;
- Aligning the IP portfolio with the company's
corporate and intellectual property strategy;
- Managing IP Portfolios
- Developing intellectual property
- Reviewing business processes (eg
HR, procurement, engineering and R&D)
for IP effectiveness;
- Devising and undertaking IP development
& awareness workshops within businesses;
- Assisting in business development
through licensing & joint venturing;
- Intellectual property valuation
to help position goodwill in acquisitions,
mergers and disposals;
- Intellectual property licensing
and in particular patent licensing;
- Preparing for & undertaking patent
licensing negotiations on behalf of clients,
as leader or supporter;
- Helping to devise and implement
commercially appropriate IP enforcement
