With no strategic vision, intellectual property is first and foremost a source of expenditure, which can be frustrating. The objective of this service is to implement a strategy which helps optimise the budget dedicated to IP and build a coherent approach, shared by everyone in the company.
PURPOSE OF THE SERVICE
IP management consulting devises an intellectual property strategy over the mid- to long-term and generally includes:
An audit and interview phase to learn about the company, its objectives, its competitive environment and the current situation of its intellectual property portfolio and existing procedures;
A phase defining its directions, drawing up a summary document with a company representative which will normally be submitted for validation by the company’s board of directors.
Writing a white paper for IP and innovation, including
A message from the company chairman, defining major strategic choices
A tactical guide presenting the key themes (preserving know-how; policy about designer-inventor employees; legal organisation of partnerships; coordination between the marketing and legal departments for trademarks; dynamic management of the patent and trademark portfolio and estimated budget; patent and trademark intelligence; surveillance of the competition and management of IP disputes, etc.)
Practical information sheets and in-house documents (declaration of employee invention, confidentiality agreement, check-list of verifications before launching a process, etc.)
