We re an IP Consultancy based in Hertfordshire which was set up by Rob Carter, a senior IP lawyer with over 30 years' in-house experience in the management and exploitation of intellectual property. Our front line experience in industry equips us to understand the business context of our clients' needs and to provide them with business-focussed, pragmatic, cost effective solutions. We help SMEs to use intellectual property to grow their business by maximising the value of their IP and identifying and managing the associated risks.
Rob Carter is also part of K2 IP Limited which is an IP law firm with a difference, supported by  Keltie LLP. Each K2 IP practitioner is independent and top-flight in their field with many years' IP experience gained mainly in-house. Together we can provide cost competitive support to SMEs along their complete IP journey from ideation to exploitation. We can handle all aspects of IP strategy, invention harvesting, patent/design/trade mark application and prosecution, enforcement and defence of IP, due diligence linked to investment, financing or as a prelude to M&A or collaborative activity, and all forms of IP exploitation.
We offer a fixed price IP health check to help SMEs identify and record their IP, assess how IP underpins their innovation and creativity, understand the role of IP in their business sector, understand their IP risks and mitigation strategy, and how IP can bring greater value to their business.
Please contact us if you have valuable IP you wish to protect, defend, enforce or exploit, or if you need advice on how to organise and structure your IP-related activities in a cost-effective manner.
Whatever your IP needs, we can help. For SMEs based in Hertfordshire we offer an initial, no obligation 30 minute consultation free of charge.
