From boutique IP services that will build your IP portfolio to director level consultancy guiding your business, Lamond IP is dedicated to your success.

What’s your IP strategy? Do you know your own IP portfolio? Can you list its strengths and weaknesses? How to exploit its opportunities? What might pose a threat to your portfolio?

Increase the IP wisdom of your organisation. I will show you a new level of understanding & appreciation of IP and what it can do for your organisation.

The world of IP can be daunting and complex. Especially when starting out, it can be difficult to make sense of why you’re doing all this work on IP when you have a business to run.

I bring years of experience to help you reach your IP goals: My goal is to bring powerful and practical solutions to your organisation. I create actionable strategies for my clients, big and small, for traditional technologies and new, emergent technologies.

My skill lies in understanding your business and technology. The why and the how, not just the what of your products & services, to work with you to create manageable IP solutions.

 

Manage costs and expectations, identify & leverage opportunities: understand what you have now, and what you should have, to support your business at every stage of the IP lifecycle.

OUR SERVICES

IP Consultancy

We create effective IP solutions for your business. We tailor strategies to your needs by drawing on extensive expertise of in-house IP management and private practise across a spectrum of technologies.

We will help you understand and maximise the value of your IP, creating strategies to minimise risks and costs while maximising quality and opportunities in your IP.

We will provide you with practical, actionable advice on developing IP strategies for your business, for the specific projects and programs you are embarking on.

We can provide IP input essential for due diligence functions, so important when considering the true worth of your business and its assets, especially during fundraising ventures--show your investors your true worth. This includes freedom-to-operate opinions, analysing risks and defusing them, and providing cost effective litigation support.

We can generate IP audits to help you understand the state of your art and develop goal-oriented strategies to support specific business needs. This might include best practises for in-house IP functions, or invention evaluation schemes, and general IP management that is not part of your filing and prosecution work--freeing your time, finances, and mind to engage in the bigger picture while maintaining a firm hand on steering and aligning IP to your business strategy.

I create tailored coaching programs for management and C-suite level participants, to expanding understanding of IP as specialist business function.

I facilitate workshops on invention mining--discovering inventions in your specific projects and programs.
