IP Strategy

  • Search.

  • Patentability search - check if your idea new and inventive before incurring the expense of an application.

  • Infringement search - It is important to note that a patent does not guarantee me the right to put the patented product on the market. This is because an earlier patent in the hands of another person may prevent me. For example, although I have a patent to a new mobile phone incorporating a solar cell arrangement, an earlier patent relating to the solar cell may prevent me from marketing my phone. Check if there are any patents that cover the product you want to put on the market.

  • Renewals.

  • Watching competitors, e.g. newly published patent applications and obtaining evidence of infringements.

  • Marking to inform others of your IP.

  • IP education for your organisation.

  • Employee inventions, inventor reward schemes and employment contracts.

  • Portfolio management including budgeting.

  • Trade secrets (also referred to as know-how), including trade secret registration.

  • Translations.

  • Technical Drawings.
