Offering you peace of mind when it comes to IP protection

We’re focused on providing innovators like you with strategic and hands-on intellectual property support that’s in line with your business objectives. It’s not just about filing patents – it’s about providing you with a virtual IP management service to help you:

Achieve your maximum valuation

VIPM will align your IP strategy with your organization’s objectives to help you achieve maximum valuation and leverage IP assets.

Close financings or acquisitions

With VIPM your IP portfolio is always ready for due diligence scrutiny or for reporting to boards and investors.

Mitigate risks

VIPM provides you with proactive IP protection that reduces your risk of litigation, loss of funding and opportunities. 

Save time, money and resources

VIPM gives you quick and easy access to the information you need when you need it. No stress and hassle of file and data management.

We started working with Stratford IP in 2018. Right from day-one, they brought business sense to our use of intellectual property. They are pragmatic and focused on delivering and creating value for our organization. With their VIPM service, we no longer have to worry about our IP. We know we have a good IP strategy and it is proactively implemented to provide us with better protection and value at predictable cost.
Simon Chaput
CEO, Founder Boreas


Acting as your virtual in-house IP counsel, our team proactively tailors, documents, implements and executes an IP strategy specific to your business plan. 

We lead brainstorming sessions to extract new ideas and enhance existing ones, all with the aim of maximizing the value of your portfolio at the most efficient cost possible while ensuring all the innovative aspects of your products are protected. With this approach, we do the heavy lifting — freeing your busy executives so they can focus on other areas of the business.

The team has successfully drafted hundreds of patents worldwide in a wide variety of technical fields including high tech, biotech, cleantech, fintech and consumer goods just to name a few. The team is comprised of a combination of USPTO and CIPO patent and trademark agents and innovative strategic thinkers.
