IP strategy services

An IP strategy allows you to understand, manage and capitalise on the IP in your organisation. It can also help you win more market share, secure higher prices or ensure lower costs than your competitors. A clear strategy also answers the day-to-day questions most organisations face around what to do about IP. 

So how do you develop an IP strategy that does these things? IP is critical to modern businesses and a mix of IP rights is usually the best way to build real value in your intangible asset base. This does not happen without careful thought and planning.

A good IP strategy makes sure your commercial goals are kept to the fore. It also provides a framework to work within when you are deciding on what IP rights to secure and where to spend your money.

Depending on the nature of your business and requirements, we pair members of our commercial and strategy team with appropriate technical experts to deliver our IP strategy services. This ensures you can benefit from the deep technical insights we offer, in a way that aligns with your business goals.

The aim is to equip you with the skills or advise you how to use the complex world of IP to your advantage. 

We offer four levels of service designed to meet different needs and budgets
