advisory
IPEngine’s advisory practice, in affiliation with Promineo, delivers a range of research-based consulting services to help clients develop appropriate strategies and assess opportunities across the full spectrum of IP management.
 
Strategy development
Patent portfolio strategy - ensures alignment between business goals and patent strategy, establishes criteria for guiding invention assessment, identifies gaps to be built via acquisition, etc. IPEngine takes a data-driven approach to developing strategy, leveraging its suite of research services to assess the current portfolio, competitive landscape, etc.
 
IP Asset Management - or portfolio analysis can help clients understand where they have gaps in their patent protection by mapping their IP “umbrella” against their key sources of revenue, as well as identifying where they may be spending unnecessarily to support IP no longer core to the business. Taken together, these analyses help a client identify how to protect themselves most cost-effectively.
 
Commercialization strategy - IPEngine’s commercialization strategy support work begins with a detailed assessment of a client’s patent portfolio and where it fits within the relevant technology domain and market space. The portfolio is assessed in terms of the intrinsic strength of the patents included, as well as the value of its IP to the economics in its marketplace. Taken together, these provide the basis for execution of an effective commercialization effort.

Opportunity evaluation
Portfolio Analysis - organizes a client’s patents by creating a taxonomy using patent classification codes or client’s business requirements and analyzes each patent within its classification. This taxonomy catalogs and examines patents by technology domains and sub-domains describing key elements of their technology and also evaluates the portfolio’s strength within a defined market.
 
Competitive Intelligence - is a thorough analysis of patent assets in a specific technology domain; it highlights major roadblocks to technology or product development and identifies opportunities for R&D and future product development, patenting, licensing, etc. The report evaluates products, people, companies, and best practices and provides insights on competition within a defined market.
 
Target Identification and evaluation - uses a thorough Patent/Technology Landscape Analysis to identify potential patent portfolios and/or companies that fit a client’s criteria for acquisition or In-licensing, as well as those that may be infringers of an existing patent or portfolio. Coupled with detailed claims mapping work, the study enables a client to take a prioritized approach to any transaction it faces.
 
Transaction Support - combines research support for the transaction in question including evaluation of related patents and the market context within which they exist, with guidance regarding transaction structuring issues and market heuristics for key business terms.
