Intellectual Property (IP) Consulting, Opinions & Agreements

Gaining business value from Intellectual Property requires strategic planning, smart investment, timely action, skillful implementation, and swift response.

Intellectual Property (IP) Consulting, Opinion, Advisory, Research and Analysis Services

A well thought out Intellectual Property plan and strategy can enhance the business value a company can gain from IP assets significantly. The possibilities of business success from intellectual property can be enhanced by consulting an experienced and qualified IP attorney, who is able to understand the business context/objectives and provide an unbiased and honest opinion. The inputs of the IP attorney or expert may be acquired at different points in the IP life cycle such as IP discovery/identification, protection, management, enforcement, litigation, dispute resolution, licensing, commercialization, and valuation. Acquiring independent legal and business opinions can also help a company avoid IP infringement and violation risks, and defend itself during litigation. More often than not, a second, independent opinion from an accomplished and experienced IP attorney helps business leaders make tough and important IP decisions.
