A clear understanding of your company’s IP assets is critical. Our IP Audit services provide that understanding through evaluation of the IP assets owned by your company to help you learn how the IP is being used and to ensure that the best strategies are in place for managing and utilizing the IP.
Our IP Audit will examine factors such as ownership, lapsed rights, level of utilization of IP assets, validity of key patents, value and importance in the industry, life expectancy of the IP, and licensing and/or contract duties and obligations. The factors listed here and other factors to be examined depend on the scope of the IP Audit.

Successful IP Audits require a blend of your business professionals and our IP attorneys, whom have the legal and technical background to quickly familiarize themselves with your core technology, and provide valuable conclusions.
