Intellectual Property

IP business strategy for tech-driven companies

Intellectual property, or IP, is at the heart of the 21st-century intangibles economy. Your IP could be copyrighted material, patents, trade secrets, or take other forms. Basically, it's your company's cookbook of secret sauces.

That's not stuff you should be giving away for free. If you don't have an IP development and protection strategy, your most valuable assets could be at enormous risk.

Communitech and our partners can help.
