IP professionals in the U.S. have become accustomed to managing large and complex portfolios in diverse jurisdictions while navigating challenging budgets and focusing on global value creation. But since COVID-19 entered the world and spurred digital acceleration, these issues around complexity, budget considerations and an increasingly global marketplace have become even more complicated.
Change is everywhere for IP decision-makers, and they are looking for the evolution of smart and cost-conscious IP solutions that provide strategic advice, data-driven insights and digital tools that drive efficiency and effectiveness.
To help stakeholders better understand and address this new environment, NovumIP is pleased to present the findings of its 2021 U.S. IP benchmarking survey, which combines quantitative data from U.S. participants of its global benchmarking survey, along with qualitative insights from in-house and law firm IP specialists.
Capturing U.S. trends and challenges
The purpose of this research is to gain deeper insights into the current IP landscape in the U.S. when compared to other regions, trends in strategy, technology, budgeting and resource management, and what IP professionals want from their service providers. We hope you find the research a useful planning and benchmarking tool.
