For most early stage companies, developing an intellectual property strategy is a critical business plan component.
For many, the necessity of this strategy is not recognized until patent or trademark filing and prosecution fees begin to compete with funds for other business initiatives.Establishing an IP plan early in business development is not only key to protecting a company’s most valuable assets, it is critical to setting and conforming to an operations budget.
In assisting with development of your company’s patent strategy, we begin by gaining an understanding of both your business and IP goals. We understand that these can be equally important yet competitive interests, so we take a top-down approach to helping you set IP priority lists and timelines that keep your assets safe without interfering with the rest of your business.Don’t have a business plan?
