IP strategy & management

No matter the size or nature of your business a strategic approach to protecting your ideas is essential.

We offer a full range of strategic intellectual property management services. These services range from initial commercially aware reviews of what IP could enhance and support your business through to the cost-effective management of the process of generating, using, enforcing and defending your IP. We also address the potential for others’ IP to threaten your business and associated commercial risks that that threat may bring.

As one of Europe’s largest firms of patent and trade mark attorneys, and the first in the UK to establish a Legal Disciplinary Practice (LDP) with the addition of our Dispute Resolution and Legal group, we are uniquely able to provide strategic advice on IP matters across an extensive range of technological disciplines, legal issues and commercial contexts.

Some particular strategic services we offer are:

  • IP auditing and IP health checking

  • IP Infringement and validity opinions 
  • IP due diligence 
  • IP portfolio management 
  • Concordance analysis
