Strategic Counseling

Our clients' goals are as individual as our clients themselves. We bring years of success in helping clients design and execute patent strategies to achieve their unique objectives, whether they are innovative start-ups, multinational corporations, research universities, buy-out targets, or other type of IP-driven organization. We understand that while IP for one company is a means to protect current market share and US manufacturing base; for another company, IP is a tool to provide access to venture capital; and for a third company it can provide entry into a new product market. For a university, IP can provide licensing revenues, support spin-offs, and attract grants; while for a small-cap company, IP may be an integral component of its preferred exit strategy. And of course not all organizations can devote the same level of resources to acquiring and maintaining patents.

We help our clients achieve their objectives by planning, modifying, and executing IP strategies that achieve a competitive advantage consistent with their start-to-finish-line goals. Senniger Powers brings much more to the table than high quality patent prosecution skills. Our team provides counsel and accomplishment in the following areas:

  • IP asset acquisition
  • Patent prosecution strategies
  • Asset licensing
  • Clearance
  • Cross-licensing and enforcement strategies
  • Validity/Infringement analyses and opinions
  • Competitor portfolio analysis
  • Client portfolio assessment and analysis
