    How to significantly reduce cost on short, mid and long term in your IP lifecycle for Patents, Trademarks and Designs. The need for cost transparency and cost control in IP is obvious and more needed than ever. On the way toward cost transparency and control, assignees are faced with well-established processes – that no-one wants to challenge, different processes for different IP-rights and an unmanageable number of invoices. The workshop will show different approaches how to achieve the desired cost transparency via • Agent Benchmarking and Auditing • Portfolio Pruning with software and/or experts • Cost management across the whole IP prosecution lifecycle Practical exercises will allow the participants to perform an IP-cost pruning for a given portfolio and to align it with a reduced budget. Followed by additional exercises for identification and quantification of cost savings.
