Portfolio management

AKA taking care of business.

As an intellectual property portfolio grows, so does the complexity of managing it, along with the possibility of ‘blow-outs’.

We have well-tested portfolio management systems and our team is trained to manage your portfolio effectively having regard to what is happening in your organisation.

In particular we:

  • Appoint a corporate liaison whose job it is to understand your organisation and communicate that understanding to our team looking after you;
  • Have a single attorney manage trade mark and patent families to avoid ‘double-ups’ or inconsistency in the rights gained;
  • Have a dedicated renewals team familiar with renewal systems around the world; and,
  • Have great documentation systems so you can easily see what is happening in relation to your rights.
“Management is all about managing in the short term, while developing the plans for the long term”. – Jack Welch CEO General Electric
