In order to be able to make decisions about IP – including whether to acquire IP owned by others – you need to understand what you’re dealing with. What IP exists? Who owns it? Are you taking adequate steps to prevent it from being lost, stolen or destroyed? Does anything need to be done to register or protect it? Are there any risks associated with its use? Are you handling it in a way that complies with law? Our IP audit services will enable you to answer these questions.
Our IP audit and due diligence solutions include:
- Conducting pre-purchase due diligence enquiries, including as part of legal teams for non-IP law firms
- Conducting IP audits as a prelude to implementing a formal IP management program
- Reviewing policies, procedures and practices associated with the management of personal information under the Privacy Act
