Maintaining the competitive advantage that companies derive from the creation of unique intellectual property (IP) requires vigilant protection of these intangible assets. Whether an organization wants to fully monetize its IP, is unsure how to identify and secure trade secrets, needs to ensure a patent will hold up if asserted, or has experienced IP theft, assessing and protecting proprietary ideas is a strategic priority.
At Stroz Friedberg, our teams provide expert advice to help clients create or refine their IP strategies. We combine our extensive experience in the IP field with our proprietary patent-analysis tool, Legion®, to characterize, evaluate, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of patent portfolios. Whether buying, selling, licensing, or asserting a patent portfolio, our experienced IP technologists help companies optimize the business value of their IP.
In a shifting IP landscape, our comprehensive identification, protection, and enforcement service – SIPPS™ (Strategic Intellectual Property Protection Service) helps companies stay on the offensive throughout the IP lifecycle, by: proactively identifying trade secrets; ensuring the most effective and appropriate protections and controls are in place at every stage to mitigate high priority risks; and maximizing a company’s ability to respond rapidly and effectively when IP is misappropriated or otherwise infringed.
With SIPPS™, companies limit damage in the event of a theft. Moreover, companies benefit from an integrated, lifecycle-based approach to IP protection delivered by an industry-leading team that has been on the front lines for almost 20 years.
