Portfolio Management

Cost is What You Pay, Value is What You Get 

Securing patent protection for your innovations is a necessary investment, particularly if you are interested in global protection – but it needn’t be costly.  Striking the right balance between cost and value is challenging; Volpe and Koenig’s attorneys understand this, and counsel clients to maximize value of their portfolios while keeping costs in check.

Our approach to portfolio management starts with client partnering. We work to understand your portfolio goals and constraints so that we can best counsel you, working both with your selected direction and adding insight where warranted.  Once your goals are identified, your portfolio can be reviewed, ranked and classified; prosecution protocols can then be implemented based on the ranking and classification.  These protocols may include, depending on your specific goals, jurisdiction-based case handling, development of strategic claim language to strengthen validity and/or improve the likelihood of infringement, and continuation strategies to maintain flexibility.  For certain ranks or classes of applications, continuation strategies that maintain flexibility and preserve your ability to realize value from a patent family for the duration of its lifecycle may be desirable.  For some applications, we also suggest creating working claim charts that focus prosecution and result in valuable issued patents.

Value begins with Volpe and Koenig’s partnering with your business – we ensure your firm is using the best strategy to maximize the value of your portfolio.
