With the right advice the sale of IP can be a low risk & high yield activity, capitalising on substantial R&D investment made by companies and research institutions. For corporations, non-core IP can be sold in much the same way as a non-core business. For research institutions, there is a real opportunity to crystallise full value from IP assets without the risk of setting up spin-off companies or complex licensing agreements.
With our deep experience we are able to best match the expectations of the patent owner with the best possible buyer in the global landscape. Our depth of partners around the world gives us un-paralleled ability to achieve the best result for our clients.
IP Committee Supervision
Far too often IP Committee lack direction and professionalism, resulting in over-runs of costs and sub-standard portfolio management, and often a lack of strategic alignment with the overall entity. This is true for corporations and universities and other entities.
We offer professional supervision of your IP Committee. Usually we implement this via the appointment of one of our experienced executives as an IP Committee member, or preferably, Chair of your IP Committee. This type of appointment is similar to appointing a professional board member to the company board.
We work with SME’s, corporations, government agencies and research institutions to supply leading patent analytics services and to licence market leading and disruptive IP to the global market. This can range from proven technologies that have already had limited licensing revenue, opportunities that exist to replicate existing contracts in new territories, through to exclusive commercialisation agreements and specific applications in different Field of Use jurisdictions.

On a smaller scale we often use this capability for corporations seeking to identify patent infringement. There are many other use cases for this capability.
IP Mediation Services
We help clients with IP mediation as a low cost and effective alternative to resolving IP related disputes.
Mediation has been used globally to resolve IP disputes and shown to be highly effective with up to 70 per cent of cases being resolved.
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party, the mediator, guides the parties towards a mutually acceptable agreement. Mediation is an attractive option for parties that place a premium on the preservation or enhancement of their relationship, seek to maintain control over the dispute settlement process, value confidentiality, or want to reach a speedy settlement without damage to their reputations.
