The most valuable asset of an innovator is an Intellectual Property Product (“IPP”).

Through effective Intellectual Property Management, we help clients to maximise net of tax returns through identification, protection and commercial exploitation of their IP.Through our partnership with external royalty auditors we regularly conduct royalty audits to ensure full and proper remuneration is received under contracts that we manage, with payments for these services being funded from additional revenues generated. For more information on how IPM can help you maximise commercial revenue from the identification, protection and exploitation of IP, please contact us at email@example.com
