IP Risk Prevention

Patent information is generally accessible to the public and thus an excellent base for patent-related technology and competition monitoring (IP competitive intelligence).

Top management of  companies is asking more and more for the value contribution of IP activities. Therefore companies put emphasis on patent-related processes to be carried out efficiently and on modern methods to be used.
