Making the most of your Intellectual Property


Making the most of your Intellectual Property (IP) can be a challenge. 2011 saw a number of legal battles in the telecoms industry between industry giants. As we are well aware, despite these high profile cases played out in the press, IP is much more about the day-to-day challenges of managing portfolios to get the best return on investment and secure a future for your innovation.

It is also about making the right choices - some of which are not obvious, as you will recognise from the following short story... Watch the video

PA Consulting Group has the expertise to help companies create, manage and exploit IP.

IP is at the heart of modern life: without the ability to create, protect and exploit IP, modern businesses would not survive and R&D efforts would be compromised.

As organisations recognise the value of their own intangible assets and seek to develop partnerships with others, clear IP strategies are of vital importance. It is a board-level issue with consequences for shareholder value.

PA has a unique combination of deep technical knowledge and experience of the full IP lifecycle from initial R&D strategy and IP creation, through patent filing, to licensing and provision of expert support for litigation.

Our expertise supports clients by:

  • providing confidential and independent technical support services to evaluate investment opportunities in technology and IP-oriented businesses

  • performing audits or patent mining exercises to identify hidden gems of IP

  • supporting litigations by acting as expert witnesses.

Our independent expertise helps organisations, ranging from smaller entrepreneurial companies to multinationals, to nurture and grow their businesses through the identification and exploitation of strategic IP assets.
