Commercialisation

Our clients expect more than just an expert patent or trade mark service.  Our business focus allows us to offer much more.  We work with a number of clients, most especially in the university, public sector and utility sectors, to generate income from their IP assets and have been involved with a number of highly successful spin-offs and licensing deals. 

Understanding the business behind our clients' IP assets allows us to look at their portfolio's in a way that creates new opportunities for them to generate income.  We could introduce one client to another, or to someone in our business community who needs their technology. We could identify an unexploited invention that could be commercialised through a joint venture or licensing deal.  We will use our IP and negotiation skills, business intelligence and commercial acumen to find the best deal for their IP. 

We regularly conduct market and competitor research as a part of our overall management of our client’s portfolios, and help our clients achieve an edge over the competition by providing guidance and practical advice and work closely with them to define their business development and IP strategy objectives. 

The commercialisation and IP licensing environment is extremely competitive. Organisations need to work efficiently and quickly to identify, evaluate, and negotiate deals that create value. Working with our clients, we will always look for ways in which they can gain competitive advantage through their IP and how this can be used to generate additional sources of revenue.
