In the case of a growing patent portfolio or realignment of IP strategies, which intellectual property rights are of strategic importance for the company should be taken into account. For example, is an active or passive patent strategy being pursued?
An essential aspect in the restructuring of patent portfolios apart from the technological side is, of course, the costs. Consideration must be given, inter alia, to costs associated with application and maintenance, but also with the defence of property rights. A high-quality analysis of the portfolio enables the identification of hidden, and sometimes unnecessary, costs.
With the help of suitable analysis methods and scoring models, we support our customers with the cost-benefit optimisation of their patent portfolio.
The external, unbiased point of view and the use of graphical methods make it possible to vividly identify weak points in the portfolio and to highlight particularly promising developments.
