Intellectual Property

Your IP can be your greatest asset. Protecting it, maximizing it, and benchmarking it against your competitors are key elements to getting the best ROI out of your R&D investment. You need to access and assess a lot of information – and quickly – to put your organization in the best position possible to protect vital assets.

Thomson Reuters has an in-depth repository of pharmaceutically relevant patent information to help you:

  • Gain a clear and complete picture of the IP landscape, enabling fair assessment of your own and competitors’ patent portfolios to make the best strategic decisions
  • Uncover what has been patented in a particular area of research that your company is focusing on
  • Determine trends in patenting among competitors
  • Understand what is the freedom to operate
  • Assess the competitive landscape in relation to what IP is available to protect a drug
  • Monitor competitor activity, e.g. what are they publishing, patenting, and reporting at conferences
