Data to support decision making / IPR Strategy

IPR Strategy

IPR Strategy defines how your company’s IP assets should be managed. It's a plan to acquire, protect and exploit IP assets and leverage them to gain additional value for your company. IPR Strategy is the basis for future decision making in IPR-matters. It's worth drawing up even in small companies regardless of the industry.

IPR Strategy will help your company succeed. We will clarify the strategic significance of IPR and set the top IPR priorities to support the development of your business. IPR Strategy will provide guidelines for running the IPR activities of your company cost-effectively and in a value-adding manner. The importance of IPR Strategy is evident in financing rounds, as a properly managed IPR portfolio increases the value of your company.

1. Analysis of the present status and operational environment

We will analyse the contents of your company's present portfolio. We will evaluate coverage and quality of protection, possible shortages, and development needs. We will investigate the IPR operating environment from the viewpoints of competitors, technology, and markets. Additionally, we will analyse challenges and opportunities formed by the IPR environment and strive to identify the most significant risks for your business operations.

Tailored 2-6 hour workshop that identifies IPR issues relevant to your business and defines how you should built and manage your IP assets. We will discuss your IPR and role of different IP forms in your business. We will clarify the strategic power of IPR in your company. We will set the targets for building and exploiting your IPR portfolio. Additionally, we will discuss relevant procedures and processes, organisational duties and responsibilities, and contractual and legal matters related to IP.

3. Drawing up the IPR Strategy

We will make conclusions based on the previous analyses and the IPR strategy workshop, and create an IPR strategy tailored for your company. The IPR strategy will be documented in the form and extent as agreed. If necessary, we will attach other documents to the report, such as IPR operating instructions, a template for invention disclosure and a policy for employee inventions. 

4. Final review and kick-off of implementation

We will walk you through the IPR strategy. We will discuss practical matters related to the execution of the IPR strategy and propose actions for implementation.

IPR is an investment, and there should be a way to return on investments. IPR Strategy defines how a company’s IP assets should be managed: how to acquire, protect and exploit IP assets, and how to leverage the most value from the company’s IPR. Naturally, this plan should be fully consistent with the company’s business strategy.
