IP Checkups consulting services align your intellectual property strategy with your R&D and business goals.

We analyze patents, scientific literature, and market research in the context of the competitive landscape to develop an informed and holistic view of the technologies that underlie your business. Our IP strategy services enhance organizational knowledge, strengthen your return on technology investment and establish long term corporate success.

06Competitive Patent Landscape Analysis

Prior to spending money on new R&D and product development initiatives, or making licensing and M&A decisions, we analyze competitor R&D activity and IP strategies to identify technology thickets and white space (open areas). Our landscape analysis results in actionable conclusions to help you make better strategic business decisions to move forward with your IP, R&D, and business development activities.

08Patent & Literature Searches

We offer a range of prior art search services including state of the art, patentability, validity, freedom-to-operate (FTO), clearance, and evidence of use. Our search professionals are technical and business experts with advanced degrees in chemistry, biology, electrical and mechanical engineering, and computer science.

02Patent Analytics

Patent analytics establish metrics related to innovation and technology ownership. We track filing velocities, top assignees, inventors, class codes, geographic distribution, citations, text analytics, law firm efficiency along with other metrics. These “big data” analytics provide you with quantifiable data to inform R&D, legal and business development decisions.

05Valuation, Technology Mapping

Mapping claims to technologies and products is critical to understanding which patents cover which products. We identify the strengths and weaknesses of competitors IP portfolios and filing strategies in your technical areas of interest. Then we deliver actionable conclusions related to licensing, evidence of use, efficient infringement, and technology design-around.

03Patent Landscape Analysis Software

PatentCAMâ„¢ is an easy-to-use, web-based collaboration software to manage and monitor competitive patent information. We provide the software as a stand-alone solution for you to manage, categorize, and analyze competitive patent information. In addition, our experts can develop and manage a custom patent database relevant to your technical and market areas of interest.
