Portfolio Audit

We carry out comprehensive reviews and audits of IP portfolios for many different purposes, for example where we are asked to take over management of a portfolio from another firm or where a rights holder wishes to identify cost savings or opportunities for extracting greater value from its portfolio.

An important type of audit which we are asked to carry out is to identify inventions and other potential intellectual property rights in a project or organisation where the opportunities for protection have not previously been fully identified. This is sometimes a service we are able to carry out without charge.
