IP Management Training Courses

Our IP management training courses have been designed to specifically help you navigate the procedural issues and the practical aspects of filing at the EPO, WIPO and USPTO to ensure successful outcomes.

Managing intellectual property portfolios to the best advantage can be a minefield of complex processes, database searches and formalities. Many patent applications are either lost or encounter issues that could be avoided.
