Step 3 – Develop Strategy to Protect Your Intellectual Property

IP Strategy Development

We will evaluate the results of our assessment and develop a sound strategy for protecting your Intellectual Property while cultivating an action plan that synthesizes the various stages, procedures, and costs associated with each step.

Step 4 – Finalize Parameters of Projects

Project Parameter Deliniation

After you have reviewed our custom report and materials, we will have another meeting to establish the final parameters of each project we recommend. Careful review of our action plan will allow us to make any and all adjustments and enable us to reach an agreement and move forward with the projects.

Step 5 – Ongoing Counseling

IP Assessment and Review

We have quarterly meetings to review the status of the IP matters being pursued and address any new Intellectual Property issues that have arisen since our last meeting. As always, we will remain available to help or counsel you on different legal matters as they arise. Protecting your IP is our number one priority. Period.
