Working Together Seamlessly
HOW WE WORK
At Key Patent Innovations, we combine our extensive experience in patent monetisation with our in-depth knowledge of technology markets to identify high quality patent portfolios. Working together with a select team of external consultants we develop and realise the potential of these portfolios and exploit our experience and contacts to successfully negotiate and close licensing deals thereby maximising the return to the patent owner.
