The Software and ICT sector is by its nature a sector that is forever re-inventing itself through the creation of new industry standards and new core technologies. In this sector, high volumes of patent applications are applied for and while the subject matter may be complex, costs are always important. We have long experience of working in this sector and have a good understanding of the particular challenges that it presents, such as the protection of software inventions and standard-related inventions. Using that experience and understanding, we are able to assist you in maximizing the value of your IP.
