Dentons published a guide for legal departments, to help understand why a company needs an intellectual property management system and how it can be built.

Everything is going digital; data volumes are large and changes are happening rapidly. Against this backdrop intellectual property takes on an even greater role. It will clearly become key in the next decade in a world where intellectual property, the people who create and use it, and digital tools will be essential factors for success.

Most big innovation companies have already decided whether they need an intellectual property management system in these conditions. However, our experience shows that there is now a new wave of interest in intellectual property management from both companies that didn’t used to consider this a priority area, and from those whose goal is to take an existing intellectual property management process to a whole new level.

Please find below a link to our brochure “Intellectual property management. Dentons’ experience”, created by the team of Victor Naumov – counsel and head of the St. Petersburg IP management group Anastasia Zagorodnaya and associate and patent attorney Svetlana Lialkova This brochure will help to understand why an IPM is needed and how it can be constructed. Inside, you will also find a link to an interactive test for an express analysis of whether your company needs an IPM system.
