Our Approach

Strategy provides more than just protection. A solid and well rounded strategy not only prevents competitors from copying innovative features but also assists in increasing a company’s value and making it more attractive to investors, as it clearly concretizes the innovation. IP strategy should be a strong foundation that will both protect your IP assets and allow you to build value for your organization.

Ideal for organizations looking to secure funding or who are looking for ways to leverage their innovation. Identify gaps and opportunities in several key areas:

We wanted to ensure our intellectual property value is maximized and have been working with [Stratford] to identify ways to be more proactive in the protection of our IP. As a small company, we rely on industry partner relationships when bringing innovations to market, therefore having a solid IP strategy is important to us.
