Board support and consultancy
Page White and Farrer’s attorneys are experienced at working closely with owners, directors and founders of companies to provide relevant and valuable board support. This is all part of a role of providing long term assistance to businesses.
We help identify opportunities for protecting, exploiting and monetarising intellectual property assets, such as inventions, the appearance of products, and branding.
Our attorneys are adept at providing concise reports concerning intellectual property, whether it concerns the patentability or registrability of intellectual property, or the risks of disputes and their merits and benefits.
We can provide guidance on costs having regard to the budgets of clients, and we look for cost-effective outcomes that, in particular, can reduce intellectual property fees.
Our attorneys are often involved in due diligence in checking intellectual property of other companies, particularly where clients take over other businesses in the UK, or abroad. They can provide guidance on the existence and strength of the portfolios of target businesses.
Finally, we can advise concerning the transfer and licensing of intellectual property, its valuation and recordals of changes at Intellectual Property offices.
