Developing and managing a protective rights portfolio entails implementing technical, legal and economic standards within a company’s organizational structure. For example in the processes of
– claiming inventions under the Act on Employees‘ Inventions;
– preparing patent applications;
– producing standard-essential patent applications; or
– valuating granted patents.
Poorly designed processes can be a reason for weak patents or unnecessary costs. Modifying an existing organization is often a laborious task due to the many parties involved.
