IP protection can be a critical success factor in the launch of a new product or a new venture. Obtaining comprehensive IP protection can also be burdensome at these early stages, from both a planning and budgetary perspective. The planning and budgetary challenges often encountered when protecting IP for a new product or a new venture can be managed by taking a focussed and strategic view of your business’ objectives. We gain a comprehensive overview of your IP needs and can plan and stage IP rights protection to meet your business’ commercial objectives. We understand the need for budgeting and time critical services and we provide fixed price services whenever possible.

Our services include planning for strategic investment in available IP (‘white space’), IP protection strategies for brand families, platform technologies (technologies with broad reaching applications) or product pipelines (suites of similar products or products with planned enhancements), and commercialisation strategies for exploiting existing IP (including revenue model and business model development).
Our services are customised on a case by case basis, however they often include IP audits, freedom to operate analysis (based on commercialisation strategy or go to market strategy), IP protection Gantt charting (aligning timing, costs and IP rights), and IP protection strategies. Our strategy services are often coupled with searching services which provide an evidence basis for our strategy and advice.
