IP Management & Strategy

What is intellectual property management?

A sound intellectual property strategy is crucial to ensuring longevity, growth and commercial success of any business that may come under threat from market competition with the potential to develop similar products or works. An IP management strategy should consider the development, protection and use of both owned and competitor intellectual property within a well-documented and nurtured plan.

With various forms of intellectual property to consider; including patents, trade marks, design and copyright, it is important that you select a team able to understand the intricacies of these IP types and how they may interact both in domestic and international territories.

Get to know your business & intellectual property

The first, important stage is to understand your business and the part your intellectual property plays within it. We do this through meetings and reviews of your files and documentation. It is our job to draw out the uniqueness of your design at the very start of the process.

Consideration of prior art

If you are aware of existing intellectual property that may impact your desired goal then we would carry out the necessary searches as required to ensure any potential barriers/issues are identified and incorporated into next steps.

Drafting your documentation

We then prepare the necessary documentation in line with the specific project we are working on. This will vary depending on your particular situation and requirements – for example it could be to map out on paper the unique invention for a patent or to prepare complex files for a revocation case.

Approval of drafting

We will then take the time to ensure you are happy with everything we have drafted before moving to the next stage of dealing with the relevant offices.


Depending on your specific case, we will then submit our documentation to the relevant offices and begin proceedings. With new applications we may also request search and examination reports from the office – before representing you at the various stages of any amendments to your IP specification.

Representation throughout the process before the relevant offices

There may be multiple stages of iterations and negotiations with the offices. Our experienced attorneys will represent you during these phases, keeping you informed throughout and advising you on how to proceed, obtaining your approval when appropriate.
