Patent Budgets triggered by Covid – cutting not wounding?

Webinar Recording

We hosted a webinar in June in conjunction with IAM and Lexology that looked at the challenges of managing a patent budget in times of economic turmoil.

Joined by Head of Patent Development at Red Hat, Jared Engstrom, and Head of Patents at BAE Systems, Matt McBrien, we gained real-time insights into using economic models to objectively identify those areas of the portfolio that are contributing the least value towards a patenting strategy.

The webinar Patent budgets triggered by Covid – cutting not wounding? covered:

  • What previous recessions teach about the impact on patent strategy?
  • How to save cost without creating disproportionate risk?
  • Why economic models help with both budget management and portfolio optimisation?

If you’d like to understand more about the budget management approaches discussed in this webinar or the optimisation model that could support your business, get in touch directly.
