At Blueshift IP, we work collaboratively with you to develop patent portfolios that are aligned with and support your business goals. We begin the collaboration by discussing with you your business objectives, understanding how you believe patents will further those objectives, and then selecting, filing, and prosecuting patents that further the goals we’ve identified.
This process requires us to learn about your technology in depth and your future technology development plans in the context of the competitive market in which your business operates. This way, we can obtain patents that protect your technology today and tomorrow, and enable your patents to be used offensively as necessary.
We use our combination of technological and legal expertise to craft and execute patent protection strategies that maximize the strength and value of your patent portfolio. Through this process, we educate you about the patent process and empower you to play an active role in creating intellectual property protection for your innovative technologies.
Patents that protect your core technology against your competitors
Patents that maximize value for events, such as financing, acquisition, IP, and licensing
