Patent Audit Services

Our patent audit services often are combined with our trade secret audit.  Through such audits, we examine whether our clients have appropriate technology ownership agreements with the employees and contractors who are involved in research and development, software and web site design, and other inventive activities.  Another goal of the audits is to confirm that proper steps and procedures are in place to ensure that inventions are kept confidential and that confidentiality obligations are appropriately documented.  In addition, we work with our clients to formalize the process they use to evaluate and timely file any U.S. or foreign patents.
