IP Risk Management & Freedom to Operate
The boards of companies expect their IP teams to identify, manage, and mitigate IP risks potentially faced by a company the same as disaster recovery, cybercrime and foreign exchange fluctuation. An IP risk management and mitigation strategy positions you to avoid negative consequences and threats from outside risks. Knowing all the hurdles you may face will prepare you with the right defence strategies to keep your organization thriving and ahead of your competition. For all companies, the royalty load or the royalties received is an important figure that bears directly on profit. Management and predictability are vital to reaching accurate product pricing and financial viability.
Unmanaged IP risk can have a substantial impact on your business, resulting in the loss of your freedom to operate, the removal of your products from the market or enforcement of royalty demands your company is not prepared to pay. Businesses who employ a risk management and mitigation strategy for their IP better position themselves to avoid expensive litigation and arm themselves with competitor and market knowledge that helps them stay ahead of their rivals.
