It’s an exciting time for the automotive industry.

Of course, the post-Brexit reshaping of Europe’s IP landscape will have profound implications.

But nothing like the proliferation of patenting activity around electric, hybrid and autonomous vehicles. If you operate in the European automotive industry, one of the hottest tickets in IP will impact you…

IP protection for the automotive industry

Innovation is the key driver in the car industry. Do you design and manufacture vehicle accessories? Are you a global vehicle manufacturer? Are you addressing the transition from traditional automotive design to the new world of sensors, machine learning, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I)? IP matters to you – it’s critical to your success.

How will you make the most of your existing automotive IP portfolio, or build a valuable portfolio for the future? Doing either at a time of such industry transformation presents enormous challenges.

Will you address these alone and risk ‘taking your eyes off the road’? Or will you join other enlightened organisations who already trust us with their IP portfolio management? It makes sense to partner with an established IP management firm that understands your industry’s IP. With our record of IP management for companies like yours, we can help.

  • Simplify your automotive IP portfolio management, maximise its value and plan effective future IP protection.
  • Enjoy reassuringly convenient one-stop portfolio management from a genuine pan-European business – not just another strategic alliance.
  • Benefit from many automotive patents.
  • Be free to focus on doing business in a fast-evolving industry. Meanwhile, we make sense of automotive IP law, protect your IP interests and help convert IP into valuable revenue streams.

Sound advice and professional IP services for automotive companies have never been more important for success in a global industry that Henry Ford or Louis Chevrolet would barely recognise.  We both understand how industry regulatory environments are changing; not least for new disruptive technologies associated with electric and autonomous vehicles. Meanwhile, competitors, envious of your automotive IP, are looming in your rear view mirror. Don’t worry: we’ll help you stay ahead…


IP management for automotive patents like yours

It’s not just about new technology either. Transportation-related patent classes continue to see intensive activity around traditional automotive technologies – from major innovators such as Ford, Honda, GM, Goodyear and BMW as well as smaller players and industry newcomers.

In fact, as more technology businesses enter the automotive industry, patent litigation is inevitable – not least when initiated by patent assertion entities against original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), top-tier suppliers and vehicle management chip manufacturers.

However the automotive landscape evolves, we understand that it’s challenging. And that your priority must be to grow your place in the industry that Karl Benz and the Renault brothers started, but where firms like Tesla, Google and Dyson have taken up the innovation baton.

Whether you’re Toyota or a tiny component specialist, from patents to licensing, your business-critical IP won’t manage itself. That’s why we specialise in managing automotive industry IP portfolios like yours – while you get on with building your place in automotive history!
