Intellectual property is a crucial part of a company’s competitive advantage, helping to drive profitability and overall strategy for corporations. Chief IP counsel must not only manage ongoing regulatory changes that impact IP management, but also steer their in-house departments in handling global IP issues, cybersecurity threats, M&A activity, and overall cost management. Through a well-defined IP strategy, chief IP counsel will be in the best position to leverage their company’s competitive advantage and deliver added value to the business.
This data survey report seeks to provide information on trends within the in-house IP realm to help guide and improve corporate IP strategy in the year to come.
Consero’s Intellectual Property Management Data Survey was developed in connection with its June 2016 Global Intellectual Property Management Forum. The audience consisted of chief IP counsel from Fortune 1000 corporations. A total of 50 responses were provided, yielding compelling data with brief analyses that may help to identify and predict future trends within the industry.
