IP MANAGER: »I have lost perspective of my IPR portfolio – what to do?«
Ideally, an IP portfolio underpins the strategy of a company and contributes to the company achieving its stated goals. Accordingly, the composition of an IP portfolio should be pivotal in the preparation of an IP strategy.
Since the goals and strategy of a company usually change over time, the IP portfolio requirements will also change. Therefore, it is important that a careful IP portfolio check be carried out regularly with a view to assessing what rights no longer contribute positively to the company, and determining how the portfolio can be strengthened.
At Dragsted Partners, we take full responsibility for handling all aspects of our clients’ IP portfolio. We can help you assess existing rights in order to identify what rights no longer contribute positively to your company, e.g. rights that cover outdated technology.
We can also identify areas of the portfolio that need to be strengthened. Rights that do not fit into the portfolio should be eliminated in order to reduce costs, allowing for investment in new rights that may boost the portfolio and ensure that it meets future requirements.
The administrative tasks related to our clients’ IP portfolios are handled professionally by our team of highly competent and skilled Patent Paralegals. They have the knowledge required and always maintain the overview necessary to be able to navigate and communicate in a complicated patent system. Their services include
- Administering statutory deadlines

At Dragsted Partners, we see patents as an investment
