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.
