We have experience of conducting intellectual property audits following the guidelines of the UK Intellectual Property Office. We have a methodology, including a questionnaire which underpins a semi-structured interview, which allows us to investigate whether an organisation has IP assets, and to provide advice on protection and exploitation strategies. Funding for audits of this kind is frequently available from the IP Office, making this a great way for organisations to get to grips with IP. An audit will typically cover;
- The business context
- Audit of existing IPRs
- Audit of potential IP threats
- Recommendations for IP management practices and procedures
- Recommendations for IP commercialisation strategies
