Strategic Counseling and Portfolio Development
Launching a new product or going global? As your business develops and grows, we help assess the extent to which your IP is protected, avoiding exposure to misuse of unregistered IP rights.
We offer practical advice on how to develop and exploit IP assets, at home or abroad. We conduct audits to evaluate your IP portfolio, recommending steps to strengthen it or improve cost-efficiency. The strength and value of your IP can be pivotal in the context of a transaction.
We advise on non-infringement and invalidity positions with respect to patents. Should licensing discussions with a competitor not lead to an amicable conclusion, we provide you with appropriate litigation strategies.
