A well managed patent portfolio is a very powerful commercial tool that can be used to increase the value of your business and secure commercial monopolies over your inventions. Protecting your inventions with robust patent applications is the first step in building a valuable patent protfolio.

Patent matters can be complex, and it is important to work with a patent attorney who understands both your technology and your business objectives.
