IP Management & Strategic Counselling

As intellectual property becomes an increasingly integral part of the global marketplace, we seek to assist our clients in recognizing the potential value in their IP, and capitalizing on tools and expertise that may not be identified and protected. At Bereskin & Parr, we pride ourselves on the technical qualifications and industry knowledge of our professionals. This combination, as well as in-depth patent and trademark law training and experience, allows us to offer a full range of IP services, from protecting your IP assets, to assisting in the development and management of a growing IP portfolio.

While our firm stays committed to the day-to-day protection of your IP assets, the IP Management & Strategic Counselling team specifically focuses on developing and monetizing the associated IP portfolio.

Securing and commercializing IP rights requires dealings with others, be a collaborator, business partner, employee, independent contractor, supplier, investor, buyer, or seller. Well-drafted agreements protect IP assets and ensure a successful business relationship. Bereskin & Parr can provide you with clear IP agreements, assuring that the parties know their rights and obligations up front which can avoid costly litigation.

Our firm offers IP Management & Strategic Counselling, as well as Licensing & IP Transactions services that not only bolster the value of your current IP assets, but also help identify and manage a strong IP portfolio that complements business goals, maximizes profits and offers a dynamic advantage in the marketplace.
