INTELECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION
Flex R&D approaches all R&D initiatives with the intent to secure a strong patent position for our clients. We have the project leaders, technical experts, and patent attorneys needed to build and protect our clients’ inventions with patents that are broadly inclusive and highly defensible. We also offer clients our technical perspective on existing patents.
Our intellectual property deliverables include:
Clear specification of the product and its build on prior art
Technical perspective on patentability
We bring deep experience with the patent process, insight on key patentable technologies, and the ability to base additional business opportunities on the core technology so they also would be covered by the patent. We also alleviate the headaches that often come when working with outside technology partners — like tedious NDA (non-disclosure agreement) negotiations and JDA (joint development agreement) negotiations. Teams can focus on what they do best — creating viable innovations — without worrying about IP theft, whether they’ll have to share the patent, or whether their intent to market the innovation will be prematurely disclosed.
