A core expertise of Technology Outcomes is to investigate complex and voluminous technical information held by the client (in notebooks and lab reports and workshop reports) in order to develop a patent narrative with maximum distance from prior art.
IP Due Diligence
IP due diligence for patents is the process of examining the quality of a company’s patent or patent portfolio. This process can be extremely useful prior to buying a technology company or buying a license from a technology company. IP due diligence is also highly useful when planning to partner with a technology company.
IP Due Diligence may show your patented product is not as well protected as you thought.
Intellectual property due diligence can confirm the status of your patent in all countries of interest.
When Technology Outcomes completes an IP Due Diligence report you will have confidence that the patents in question are (1) properly registered and that, (2) the claims are robust and not easy to work around.
Standard due diligence activities By Technology Outcomes include:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Owning or having a registered patent offers no guarantee as to the strength of the patent’s claims.
That is to say, knowing how easy or difficult it is to circumvent the IP you may be about to purchase requires another process entirely (see mock-hostile-audit).
Even if a patent is registered and paid for it does not guarantee that its contents are fit for your company’s market-entry purposes. Depending on the scenario a patent that looks to have secure claims may in face be easy to circumvent.

Expertise Working With Patent Examiners
We understand the patent examination process and how patent examiners think. Instead of trying to push through patents that have no chance of being granted we will change the patent narrative to align with the patent examiners mindset. This leads to a greater over all rate of success in obtaining hard to get patents.
Cost Effective Comparative Rate Compared To Patent Attorneys
Allowing Technology Outcomes to tailor your intellectual property package in co-operation with a patent attorney will reduce the overall costs of utilising a patent attorney. We will reduce the cost of tasks that a patent attorney does not need to do but would otherwise charge a much higher hourly rate to complete.
