Managing IP Portfolios

Maximise protection and return on investment.

When registering IP rights outside the UK we deliver recommendations to clients rather than just passing on problems. We use our knowledge of local agencies to secure not only the best local advice, but the most preferable rates. Because our business involves instructing agents for numerous clients, we are always looking to secure preferential rates which we pass onto our clients.

Success stories

Brand trade mark protection

Our team helped a small business information company reduce its IP costs by protecting its brand using the EU trade mark and the International trade mark system, enabling it to drop all its national registrations (80% reduction in costs going forward).

Packaging design protection

Our team reviewed a medium size portfolio for a new FMCG client and noticed that its design protection (for its innovative packaging) was minimal, especially when benchmarked against the competition.

There was also no protection for a 3-dimensional trade mark which was a key part of the brand identity. Bolstering the protection was more than paid for by the cost savings we found in rationalising the portfolio.
