"PA's ability to quickly evaluate patents has been a great help in optimising the performance of Siemens’ wireless communications patent portfolio."

Peter Berg, Head of Licensing and Transactions, Corporate IP, SIEMENS

Home About technology and product development Intellectual property management

Managing and exploiting IP successfully

PA Consulting Group has the expertise to help companies create, manage and exploit intellectual property (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. IP must no longer be an afterthought of the product development department. It is a board-level issue with consequences for shareholder value.

High quality IP is critical to fostering innovation and can set your business apart from its competitors by differentiating you in the eyes of your customers. Selling or licensing IP can also provide an important revenue stream at a time when companies are increasingly considering alternative commercial models. 

We helped Siemens grow their patent licensing programme

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.

We support clients by:

■ creating 'game-changing' intellectual property on behalf of our clients

■ creating value by forging relationships and building partnerships 

■ 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.

We helped Burgopak protect their packaging design with both direct and ‘ring-fencing’ IP in the manufacturing process

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.
