Helping Tech Companies Design Patent Portfolios that Create a Competitive Advantage, Attract Investors, and Increase Company Valuation

Inventions are critical for technology companies to maintain a competitive advantage.  New competitors can "come out of nowhere" with a product that steals market share from well-established companies.  Without a strong patent portfolio, your company is at risk of lost revenue - or worse - due to these competing products.

To build a valuable portfolio of patents, your company needs a strategy for identifying, evaluating, and protecting the most valuable inventions developed by your team.
