Effective patent portfolio management can be key to leveraging inventions to bring value to a business. Patent counseling and patent portfolio management is important through the life of a patent, including filing, prosecution, maintenance, and enforcement.

Developing Patent Portfolios

Developing and maintaining a patent portfolio can involve a variety of decisions. At the outset, various decisions must be made including whether to file one or more patent applications, when a patent application should be filed, and whether to file for international protection. Patent counseling and patent portfolio management also can involve making maintenance decisions, particularly given that patents can be costly to maintain. Additionally, patent counseling and patent portfolio management may include possible enforcement of one or more patents in a patent portfolio.
