Development of individual concepts, for an IP portfolio and invention management
Patents and other IPRs represent an important company asset. We analyze and evaluate the existing IP portfolio, on the basis of the individual company objectives and strategies. We will, for instance, carry out a costs-benefit analysis, taking into account market forecasts and possible growth scenarios, through which revenues can be increased and potential risks may be recognized.
New technologies, changing demands, and the limited protection period of patents and registered utility models, also demand a continuous portfolio optimization, so that the core business of your company can be protected for the long term and developed to a maximum extent.
For a concrete assessment of an invention or a patent, we examine the requirements for entrepreneurial implementation and the specific market situation, in addition to the patent rights situation. Furthermore, we discuss with you the existing IP portfolio, and whether a complementation by additional IPRs is advisable.
In which cases does an IP strategy make sense for your Company?
- Legal protection of your IPRs in the competitive environment
- Protection of the company-owned R&D activities
- Development of an in-house patent strategy
- Acquiring or in-licensing of new patents or protected rights
- Sale / out-licensing of company-owned patents and protected rights
We develop and implement a process for handling inventions that is designed for your company (employee inventions), so as to prevent potential risks that may be due to an incorrect handling of the German Employee Inventions Act (ArbNErfG). We gladly offer you in-house training courses and, together with you, we can develop possible guidelines and concepts in this regard.
