IP Asset Register

A foundational aspect of an IP strategy is being able to identify your IP assets.  We ca  help you go beyond spreadsheets and provide IP asset register software which will help you log and track IP assets of various types across your organisation – including registered IP (including patents, trade marks, designs) and unregistered IP (including trade secrets, domains, licences, contracts).

IP Analytics

IP databases have a lot of valuable information that you can use to your advantage. Our in-house IP analytics team uses state of the art platforms to provide insights such as novelty assessments, freedom to operate reports, landscape reports, and to provide monitoring of technology trends or competitor activity. Similarly, our trade mark team can monitor brand infringements and proactively take action against overlapping third party trade mark applications through our brand intelligence platform.

IP Audits

We can help you with a comprehensive audit of the IP in your business. We are experienced delivery partners for funded IP Audits in the UK, and can also provide customised audit projects to suit specific needs.  The audit process provides clarity and provides clear actionable advice.

IP Audits can also be used to produce reports which can help investors understand the strength of your IP portfolio.

IP Valuation

We can assist with valuation projects with activities such as preparing a register of IP assets, doing research to provide evidence of use, reporting on potential licensing opportunities and validating scope of patent claims.

IP Due Diligence

We can act on either side to assist with IP due diligence, for example as part of an investment round or as part of a merger or acquisition.

Licensing

We can help with IP licensing strategies to help you uncover new revenue streams for your business, and to help you dispose of or acquire IP assets according to your strategic goals. These strategies can inform decision making about the creation and maintenance of your IP portfolio.

“Scintilla have been extremely useful for us, helping to understand the value of our IP in its wider view. They have undertaken an IP Audit investigating our possibilities for patents and to give us confidence that we do not violate existing patents. It also comes with valuable recommendations about working practices with external organisations, the value of Design rights and Trademarks as part of our IP portfolio.”
