Stratford Intellectual Property is focused on providing innovators with strategic and hands-on intellectual property support in line with their business objectives. It’s not just about filing patents – it’s about providing organizations with a virtual IP management service to help them:
- Achieve maximum valuation;
- Improve the ability to close a financing or acquisition;
- Inform product investment decisions through regular searches of the patent database;
- Broaden IP strategy by considering various strategic approaches such as trade secrets;
- Minimize the cost of creating, growing and maintaining an IP portfolio;
- Strengthen innovation culture;
- Eliminate the burden of IP management from busy executives; and
- Mitigate the risk of litigation, investment loss and opportunity loss.
For organizations looking to maximize their valuation, mitigate the risk of litigation and decrease spending on IP management, Stratford Intellectual Property is the ideal solution. With the VIPM service, the client’s IP portfolio is always ready for due diligence scrutiny or for reporting to boards and investors. Executives have quick and easy access to the information they need when they need it, without the stress and hassle of file and data management.
“IP is one of the most valuable assets of a company and it is often managed in a piecemeal reactive manner,” says Natalie Giroux, managing director of Stratford Intellectual Property. “Without proper IP protection and management, companies put themselves at risk for litigation, lose out on funding opportunities, miss market and product opportunities and affect their company’s valuation.”
