Manage

A successful IP portfolio is a well-managed one. To be well managed, your portfolio must be understood and respected by your senior management, finance, marketing, sales and distribution and R&D executives who rely on its value. This will ensure that your IP portfolio gets the support necessary to function for maximum return.

With THE FRANCIS COMPANY's guidance, you will manage your IP more effectively through the establishment and maintenance of internal IP education programs and guidelines, Internet compliance, invention awareness and protocols, trade secret policies, enforcement strategies and programs and appropriate intellectual asset management software.

We ensure that suitable IP audit and portfolio management systems are in place and consistently monitored so as to keep you advised of breadth and functionality of your IP portfolio, approaching deadlines, and going forward strategies for the renewal and expiration of all IP rights.
