We understand that in a technology-based start-up, effective IP management is critical. We can support freedom-to-operate verification and work with you to prepare your IP strategy. We can engage our recommended patent agents who are expert in various fields, or other agents should you prefer, to work creatively to ensure an effective monopoly. Even if your business is not technology based, you may still want to protect trademarks, copyrights and design rights to give your business the edge. We can implement systems to manage your IP. We can draft, negotiate and manage in-licensing of required technology and similarly negotiate out-licenses should that become appropriate.
