Patent Licensing

Building an effective patent licensing program requires a thorough understanding of your active markets and the adjacent ones where you don’t compete. Identifying, evaluating, and securing the best licensing prospects for your intellectual property is easy with Innography. 

IP Portfolio Analysis

One of the staple tasks IP professionals undertake is to examine portfolios of competitors, companies they may acquire and even their own. With large and complex portfolios and diverse technologies, this can be a daunting task.

Patent Strategy

With business environments becoming increasingly more complex, being able to effectively refine, leverage, and protect a company's IP investment is invaluable for capitalizing on immediate opportunities and long-term initiatives.

Litigation Strategy

As your organization's legal counsel, responding quickly to patent infringement letters can make your organization a less attractive target while making more work for the licensing company. The problem is that developing an adequate response to infringement letters can be time-consuming and expensive.

Competitive Analysis

IP information can provide competitive intelligence years before companies publicly announce new products. However, because companies often try to hide their patent filings and patents change hands multiple times, it can be difficult for your organization to understand who owns what. You also need to view innovation in the context of the inventing company’s market size, revenue, and past litigation. 

Acquisition Due Diligence

Intellectual property can be an organization's most valuable asset, and as such is of high importance in technology-driven mergers, acquisitions, and takeovers. Finding the right IP portfolio to acquire is a crucial decision, but one that can be difficult based upon the limited information typically available to a corporate development team.

R&D Strategies

Identifying disruptive technologies that can provide new revenue paths or fill known gaps in current product lines is critical to an organization’s success.
