While your IP may be the most valuable asset you possess, protecting that IP or involvement in an IP dispute can represent a significant expense. Clients understandably want to see the benefits of investing time, energy and funds in IP and may be concerned by the long-term costs. We, at Angel IP, understand this can be both onerous and confusing. We can explain the cost-benefit complexities of investing in IP and how to reduce or minimise costs.
Angel IP’s own approach to costs is a practical one: we offer an initial hour of advice for free, whether this be in relation to your own IP or the IP of third parties, and our hourly fees are very competitive. In addition, and subject to circumstances, we offer flexible fixed cost packages for specific actions. No work is undertaken by Angel IP without being fully discussed with clients beforehand. Clients are given the maximum prior cost information.
Clients may be involved, sometimes reluctantly, in contentious matters and this too can be daunting for clients. We have considerable experience in advising clients on the costs of IP disputes and advising on ongoing cost exposure. Where helpful to cost-conscious clients, we are open to explore innovative financing solutions, such as third-party litigation funding.
Like our clients, Angel IP regards IP as an asset and a commercial investment, which must be properly justified. Our clients value Angel IP’s ongoing advice on costs and benefits. For us, the main objective is provide the best advice and to build long-term relationships with our clients.
