Why Global Patent Group?
World-Class Expertise at Competitive Rates
As a boutique firm, GPG is dedicated to providing exceptional intellectual property services at lower rates than larger IP firms. Our size means you get the personal attention you need, when you need it. In addition to our competitive hourly rates, we offer a number of billing options to help manage your IP budget including lump-sum, not-to-exceed, and flat-fee billing for routine services.
In many cases GPG can operate much like an in-house counsel, working with you to define and plan your strategic IP goals and objectives, establish an IP budget, and then execute on the plan. This eliminates the need for frequent and confusing letters and emails from your IP counsel.
Our approach to IP budget management sets us apart from most other firms. We will work with your team to develop an annual IP budget and forecast based on your specific portfolio and incorporating your business goals and objectives. Your budget will include all of the estimated costs for new patent filings as well as the predictable expenses such as annuities, examinations, and patent prosecution.
Whether you are a start-up company with an innovative new idea or a mature company with a large, complex portfolio of intellectual property, GPG understands the strategic importance of positioning your IP as a critical factor in evaluating opportunities such as joint ventures, IPOs, and mergers and acquisitions.
Intellectual property is often the most important asset prospective parties are evaluating. GPG has extensive experience preparing and managing due diligence exercises. We help our clients prepare an end-to-end strategy for a successful due diligence, beginning with the development of the portfolio and beyond, we can take a seat at the table and answer the tough questions that are always part of the due diligence process.
When you find yourself on the acquisition side of the table, GPG can help there too. We have successfully helped clients on both sides of the transaction. With GPG on your team, you will have a strong advocate at your next due diligence.
