IP design anyone?

As a patent attorney I typically come in near the end of the innovation process. When the client has come up with a proper invention disclosure, they send it to me, I draft the patent application and prosecute it through the examination procedure at the patent office.
But how does the client decide which inventions to file a patent for? Who helps the client derive a meaningful strategy?
I’m looking forward to my first cooperation with Wurzer & Kollegen later this week, a consulting company that does exactly that.
Their topic is IP design, which is all about designing a company’s processes and the product/service’s use cases in a way that they become patentable. Which is very different from passively waiting for the developers to randomly come up with meaningful inventions.
If you’re an in-house patent manager and think your patent strategy could need a little update, reach out to me and I’ll get you in contact with Wurzer & Kollegen.
