If you have a great idea and want to apply for a patent, consulting with an IPR attorney that knows your industry as well as the specifics of IP legislation is a good place to start.
When you as a startup company need to attract capital, it is a premise that the idea and product is protected through a patent and/or trademark registration. The investors simply demand it. That is why it has been crucial for us to have had professional consultants on board right from the very beginning.

Invest in consulting when you apply for a patent
When you apply for a patent, you enter a system full of technical specifications, claims, and deadlines. Professional patent consulting will save you time and allow you to focus your efforts on developing your idea further.
Our experts can help you assess your idea, figure out how to best protect it and help you establish a clever IP strategy.
We assist clients throughout the patenting process from initial market analysis, drafting a patent application, to handling of IP administration – and the sooner you consider your IPR (patents, trademarks and design protection) the better.
Consider patent protection from the beginning
Before you start developing your product, you must investigate whether you risk infringing on existing IP rights. Once you have determined your scope, you must find out how you wish to protect your product and name.
If you wait too long, you run the risk of others copying your idea, brand or product by applying for a patent covering a similar invention before you have the chance to do so.
Our consultants help you investigate whether there are any rights in Denmark or abroad which might prevent commercialization of your idea.
Below are some examples of our patent consulting services:
- Novelty search
- Drafting and filing patent applications
- Strategic analysis of business potential
