IP portfolio management

Whether you are starting up, or managing hundreds or thousands of patents, trade marks, or design rights, it is important to take a strategic overview and to ensure that your intellectual property portfolio is managed efficiently and cost-effectively.

Your intellectual property assets should be audited and reviewed regularly to ensure that the portfolio is fit for purpose and has kept up-to-date with wider developments in the business. In the event of a merger, or business acquisition, it is important that IP portfolios are integrated as swiftly as possible.


Page White Farrer assists with reviews and audits of intellectual property to identify gaps and suggest areas for improvement or strategic development.


Some aspects of portfolio management are administrative and yet complex, such as deciding on international protection strategies and dealing with the recordal of transfers of rights or changes of names of owners around the world. Many countries have different and somewhat onerous requirements when recording transfers of IP.


Our aim is to ensure your protection is relevant to your current needs, making it easier to litigate and defend your interests, building a more valuable business and generating higher sales. It should also help you better exploit IP rights, whether through new opportunities for licensing and obtaining royalties, or by selling part of a business, or by developing further product sales.
