In many sectors and especially for technology firms, your most valuable assets are the creative works, inventions, and the collective knowledge of your employees. There are various ways to protect those assets, some can be registered as patents, others are protected by copyright or contractual limitations of your partners, and sometimes it is best to keep knowledge as secret as possible.
We help you to protect your intellectual property, be it copyrighted works, data, designs, patentable inventions, or superior know-how.
We offer training and workshops in many shapes and forms. We analyze your company’s trade secret management, train your employees on how to deal with internal inventions, and consult on all intellectual property issues your business faces.
Based on a thorough assessment and together with your key personnel, we develop and implement tailored internal guidelines to keep your company’s intellectual property safe or license your valuable data or software in the right way.
From NDAs to know-how transfer agreements, from co-existence agreements to research and development contracts, our experts will provide you with all the necessary paperwork to best protect your intellectual property. Be it copyrighted software, invaluable datasets, or general know-how, we will tailor a comprehensive offer that meets your needs.
We consult on general patent topics and draft all necessary agreements your business needs. From negotiating R&D partnerships to the drafting of licensing agreements, we help you to manage your relationship with universities and industry partners. Together with external patent attorneys especially selected because of their technical know-how in your field of business, we research your invention‘s patentability, register your patents and monitor your portfolio or one of your competitors.
Wherever possible, we provide flat-fee quotes for full transparency. However, every complex intellectual property project is different. To tackle complex cases, we also work with hourly packages.
