Besides the actual patent administration, the protection of technology and patent positions play an important role in the IP management of a company. The own R&D activities of a company constitute one of the most essential sources for the own patent portfolio as well as for the evaluation of the own technology position compared to competitors, whereby such evaluation should be reasonably conducted corresponding to the different business units.

Professional patent administration requires also that a company, alongside its own patents, knows the other intellectual property rights in the respective business segment (especially of its most important competitors). The necessary information thereto may be obtained on the basis of the monitoring of the legal status of the patents concerned.

Important conclusions may be drawn from the technology as well as patent positions established that way. The technology and patent positions also allow for the reasonable coordination of both positions.

Rentsch Partner Ltd., thanks to the use of advanced technology and know-how, is able to professionally administrate and efficiently manage extensive patent portfolios.
