I want to know where we stand in the competitive landscape. What are the white spaces, where can we play? I'm comfortable with finance, technology and get the IP part. Show me the 30,000 foot view first, then let me drill down. Better be smart and simple.
I'm trusted to provide important strategic opinions, but often need to bring expert resources in on client projects. Our clients demand the best facts and frequently face high stakes challenges. Always looking for trusted capabilities to help clients and build loyalty.
We are concerned with getting to market quickly and avoiding wasted effort. While we want to continuously learn from our IP & innovation resources, we're not all expert searchers. Insights can't be too complicated for the business to appreciate - we require their support.
We worked with a public Food & Beverage company to help them discover novel processing technologies for much longer shelf life. Focus was on high pressure pasteurization to naturally (using water and pressure) and sustainably maintain food fresh flavor. We identified a top-ten list of potential partners with enabling IP & innovation, and we conducted anonymous outreach to qualify willingness to collaborate/license/sell. Client selected two partners to implement a final, patent-protected solution.
In conjunction with experts at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, we lead the review of thousands of patents to align them to global telecom standards. The effort convincingly identified which 4G and 5G patents likely read on standards of highest interest to our client, and who the leading players were. This greatly aided patent development, product development, and an eventual 9-figure cross-licensing negotiation for the client - a major consumer electronics company in the smartphone ecosystem.
We worked with defendants and their IP counsel to identify high quality patents to counter-assert in semiconductor patent infringement litigation. Using patent analytics to compare thousands of patents to semiconductor structures mapped with reverse engineering, we identified non-competitive patent owners "likely and willing to sell." This resulted in a patent acquisition campaign resulting in an acquired portfolio (for 7-figures in less than 100 days). Counter-assertion led to settlement of the case, mitigating a potential 9-figure liability.
