- Use Case Definition: We help you clarify the actual business problem you are trying to solve.
- Level of Use Case Protectability: We create a high-level map of the solution space. With that map, we research the marketplace and patent ecosystem to provide a clear view of how well your Use Case can be protected from competitors and emerging technologies.
- Recommendation: We provide actionable recommendations on your optimal next steps for developing an IP strategy that protects the full potential of your business.
