Audits

An IP audit will allow you to understand the nature of the IP that you own, both in terms of existing patents and trade marks and also your know-how.  We will advise on areas where we feel protection can be strengthened and also those areas where we feel technology is now obsolete and can be abandoned or where we feel unused trade marks can be disposed. 

We work with clients to examine their existing portfolios and will advise on areas such as maintenance of existing patents, renewals, licensing or portfolio sales and acquisitions.  Our portfolio audit will analyse the rights in your current portfolio and examine the strength of those rights and their usefulness to your overall business objectives.
