A robust patent portfolio helps drive a business and creates real value. Our Portfolio Diagnostic involves a detailed audit of your patent portfolio.
This type of study is very useful for companies that:
Need a better understanding of what’s in their portfolio
Need assistance in assessing their IP investment decisions
Want to improve management and monetisation of their portfolio
We’ll work with you to develop a custom taxonomy for your IP, as well as qualitative and quantitative review criteria, and then categorise and rank all your patents. The same approach can also be used to develop a detailed understanding of the portfolio of a competitor or an acquisition target.
Taxonomies can be built on technologies of interest, business unit subdivisions or market and product categories in which you operate.
Each project is customised, and we’ll work with you to confirm your business goals and desired outcomes.
We’ll assess your patent portfolio relative to your overall business objectives and provide recommendations that address your requirements, which could include aligning your patents to key products and services, identifying core patents to maintain, identifying areas to strengthen or divest, and uncovering potential monetisation and licensing opportunities.
THIS LEADS TO SEVERAL ECONOMIC AND ROI BENEFITS:
Identification and protection/awareness of key assets
Better portfolio management decisions
Sale/licensing of non-core patents that may have significant value in adjacent or emerging technology domains.
