CORPORATE ADVISOR HANDBOOK
2016 | INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
Financier Worldwide presents its Intellectual Property: Corporate Advisor Handbook 2016. This comprehensive publication contains detailed profiles of leading experts in the field of corporate finance from around the world. Comprising lawyers and consultants, this group of experts is capable of resolving IP related disputes as well as helping companies to maximise the value of their IP. In terms of IP-related disputes, their skills include patent and trademark prosecution and licensing, protecting and enforcing IP rights around the world, conducting complex patent litigation, and resolving disputes outside of court.
In an often complex, dynamic and uncertain business environment, intellectual property (IP) is among the most important assets an organisation has at its disposal. These intangible assets are now universally recognised as an important resource, the absence of which would leave many companies bereft of anything to sell or licence – a death knell for any innovative venture. Furthermore, in a contemporary world comprising a multitude of knowledge-intensive markets, ranging from the smallest of SMEs to the world’s largest and most powerful conglomerates, adopting a strategy which allows for the fullest utilisation of intellectual property assets – including copyright, patents, trademarks, trade dress (the visual characteristics of a product), designs and knowhow – is of paramount concern to a business and the route to financial success. Adopting an effective IP strategy is a key means of achieving this, and must go hand in hand with a company’s overarching business strategy. This will, in the best case scenario, lead to an increase in a company’s value, allow risks to be assessed, reduce liabilities, improve competitive position and increase shareholder returns.
