We have a very strong practice in the overall maintenance of the IP portfolios of our clients. The most classical tasks we perform on a routine basis consist in:
- IP portfolio management: routine renewals, follow-up on the renewal process, update and record of the legal changes in the status of the client;
- IP portfolio optimization: we regularly check with our clients their new products, markets or packages, in order to identify the relevant new IP assets. We also check the usefulness of renewing or abandoning already registered assets which are no longer of interest.
- IP search – very often under highly confidential requirement and high time pressure, we perform preliminary search in view of new product launches, or new market entries.
- IP due diligence – one of the most difficult tasks that are entrusted to us is to perform IP due diligence during the acquisition period, before or after the contractual closing.
