Patents are a unique source of information reflecting the level of current research and technology, long before a product reaches the market. Depending on the client’s case, we screen hundreds or even thousands of relevant patent records. We then use a set of advanced patent mapping tools that allow for meaningful conclusions to be drawn regarding the state-of-the-art of a particular technological domain, the R&D activity within a given country or region and the IP whitespace that presents major opportunities for future patent filings.
In today’s knowledge-driven economy, IP is one of the main things that allows companies to build and maintain an edge over their competition. For this reason, we assist clients in identifying the key elements that contribute to comprehensively stronger, future-proof IP, as well as in inventing beyond competitors’ patents.
