Your group has a department of patent engineers and/or lawyers specialized in intellectual property that has formed and manages a portfolio of patent and/or trademark titles that you continue to develop and actively expand.
However, your department is under the permanent pressure of budgetary constraints and requirements of financial results.
It is, therefore, necessary to regularly review your portfolio and opportunities associated with it.
Through its experience working with large groups, the IPSIDE consulting firm (an evolution of the Schmit-Chretien firm) has developed skills, tools and processes adapted to help groups align their portfolios with its markets. Permanent monitoring of your competition to identify your risks and opportunities (see Patents surveillance and Trademarks surveillance), annual or bi-annual audits to value the your portfolios (see Audits) and to help you streamline your portfolios (e.g. pruning, licensing opportunities, divestitures), budget planning of cost of your filings, renewal and upcoming filings or a secure online interface of the status of your titles are all benefits to help you maximize the economic value of your portfolio.
In addition, specialized experts in technology sectors (see sector menu) and jurists and lawyers and of the IPSIDE allow you to complement or supplement your activities of portfolio management in the drafting of patents, filings, and follow-up of titles, negotiation, definition and drafting complex contracts of licensing, assignment acquisition or consortium (see Contracts),or defense of your rights (see Litigation).
