KPMG professionals help clients to minimize intellectual property management risks

KPMG offers Intellectual Property and Contract Governance (IP&CG) services to companies with significant operations through a supplier, distributor or partner that wish to ensure that contractual arrangements are being adhered to. Moreover, our IP&CG services are useful to companies that wish to better manage, or ensure that they obtain full value from their Intellectual Property (IP).

How we can help

  • Rationalize / integrate client's IP portfolio to help management understand what IP uses, owns and protects. 
  • Identify gaps in protection, plot future protection strategies, identify potential infringements and help ensure IP strategy is aligned with overall corporate strategy. 
  • Audit third parties licensed to use client IP to help ensure full value / compliance obtained from the agreement. 
  • Independently validate and feedback on financial and operational aspects of third party performance (e.g. QA, health & safety). 
  • Independently advise on the quality of the third party relationship and contract management process.

Potential benefits

  • Minimization of IP risks such as being sued for IP infringement, duplication of effort, wasted costs, lost revenues, erosion of competitive advantage.
  • Protection / enhancement of competitive advantage and potential for value creation by ensuring IP strategies are linked to overall business strategies. 
  • We have identified savings in 70% of the 1,000+ reviews we have undertaken, amounting in some cases to 10 times our fees.
