IP Audits

Most businesses do not know what rights they hold or where the risk areas lie. An IP audit shines a light in these dark IP corners so you can plan for the future. Download and complete our free IP checklist to help identify the relevant issues for your business and identify the relevant scope.

An IP audit will help you to identify:
  • Opportunities for growing new revenue streams from licensing or sale of rights

  • Opportunities for increasing business value by registering key intellectual property rights

  • Risks from third parties with prior rights

  • Any infringers of your IP rights and strategies for overcoming them

  • Potential future IP clashes and ways to overcome them

 

The scope of an IP audit can include:
  • A call, presentation or memo to the board 

  • A full review of all registered rights

  • A trade mark, design and/or patent search

  • Details of the current status, opportunities and risk of key business IP rights

  • Analysis of key IP contracts such as licences

  • Domain name analysis

IP Strategy

Whether trade marks, designs, patents or (in some countries) copyright, we help you decide which rights to file, in what territories and when technology and social media mean that IP is in a constant state of flux. We help you manage your IP risks and maximise IP value.

 

IP Licensing

It’s important to get the right licences and licensing structure in place for your business – as you grow the optimum approach will also change so this should be regularly revisited.
