Portfolio Management

Our experience in managing intellectual property portfolios can give your business a competitive edge.

Managing your intellectual property portfolio

As IP rights and assets become more central to businesses’ commercial strategies, their value continues to grow. Now, more than ever, businesses must be fully cognisant of their IP assets and able to enforce their associated rights to protect their market interests, maximise profits and utilise leverage. Similarly, they must also be aware of competitors’ IP assets. Infringing others’ rights, even unintentionally, can lead to serious legal ramifications.
Your IP asset portfolio can be extensive, comprising a variety of intangible assets that require expert input to manage effectively. De Penning & De Penning’s IP portfolio management services make collating, administering, and leveraging your assets simple.
We believe in helping our clients discover new pathways to future success. Our cutting-edge approach ensures we stay ahead of the game, providing progressive legal advice that is aligned with the innovative mindset of our clients. To enhance the potential of your intellectual property portfolio, there is no team more qualified than De Penning & De Penning. Contact us today.

Auditing your existing rights

An in-depth audit of your business’s existing IP portfolio is vital to understanding your current position. Many companies neglect regular audits due to time or resource constraints. However, at the minimum, a yearly audit is essential to effective portfolio management.
We can conduct an extensive audit of your IP rights and assets on your behalf, identifying:

    current rights held nationally and internationally;
    expired rights;
    registered and unregistered ownership rights;
    indications of infringement.

Developing an IP strategy

Using the audit’s findings, we work closely with you to develop an IP strategy that will protect your commercial interests, complement your business policies and maximise your returns. Such a strategy might involve:

    protecting property through trademarks, patents, copyright, GI, and design rights;
    monitoring competition and taking action against infringement;
    using IP assets as leverage, for instance through franchising or brand licensing;
    maximising the value of goods and services by using IP to strengthen company reputation.
