IP strategy is the foundation
of the world’s successful businesses (just ask Apple).
IP Strategists are specialized consultants who have
demonstrated expertise in BOTH corporate business development, AND
patent and trademark development. They are the value-added bridge
between clients and their patent attorneys.
IP strategists ensure that clients do not waste money
on patents and trademarks that do not align with their core business
goals, and help them develop high value IP that does. We also help
clients understand the difference and value between developing defensive,
or offensive IP strategies.
For some clients, mitigating the risk of infringing
someone else’s patent may be the smartest strategy. The investment
in challenging the validity of competitor’s patents through
Post Grant Opposition (under the new patent laws) could be more
commercially valuable than investing in their own patents.
The IP world extends far beyond “getting a patent”
- and the rules of engagement for business managers can be daunting.
After understanding a client’s business goals, they simplify
the client’s options.
This is the domain of IP Strategists.
As Patent Strategists, we go a step further than most
IP strategists. We’re experts in patent database analysis,
we help clients develop the IP needed to dominate their markets.
When patents or other IP are involved, there is always
the possibility of infringement litigation. We provide integrated
consulting and business decision support services directed towards
strategic use of litigation to bolster an IP portfolio, including
product and technical analysis, market knowledge and analysis, and
And, our proprietary
methods (we have patents on patent analysis systems) help find
potential competitors before they launch their first products, discover
opportunities to patent around and “box in” competitors,
and identify industry trends years before next generation products
hit the market.
