Tech starters

High-tech and biotech start-up companies often live or die by the choices that they make in relation to their IP. When, as a start-up, you properly manage your IP and fully exploit your IP position, your chances of thriving in the highly competitive markets will increase. Understanding this reality, we pay special attention to helping start-ups to reach their goals.

We make a real difference. As a full-service IP firm, we guide you through the maze of dos and don’ts. Together with you we develop your IP position and make sure that it is in alignment with your overall business strategy.

Shared background

Our attorneys have extensive experience in working with high-tech and biotech start-ups. In many cases, we share a background in start-ups or have worked in the industry. We are familiar with the specific problems and challenges that you encounter. That helps us to maximize the value of your Intellectual Property.

Building a sound IP portfolio

We provide the IP service that you need for building up a sound IP portfolio and for managing it successfully. This means involving you for those aspects of IP that are particularly relevant to you and shielding you from the burden of patent/legal formalities.
