Which competitors
should I be concerned about?

Avoid being blindsided…understand your
exposure…strengthen your negotiating position

Take Stock of Your Competitive Landscape

Companies that have patents that may read on your products are a potential threat – whether they are a direct competitor or not.

If an aggressor comes knocking with a patent infringement claim, you need to know what you’re up against. What is your real exposure and risk? What patents do they have that read on your products? How strong is their position? Find out with Chipworks. We have over two decades of experience helping IP teams:

  • Understood their risk and prepare an offensive strategy
  • Improve their proactive preparation by anticipating which companies may come after them and how

Understanding Your Risks Enables You to Define Options to Protect Your IP Strategy

The explicit goal and outcome of our Competitive Landscape solution is a detailed understanding of who is patenting where, which patents map to your products, and where you can go from here. Our solution involves:

  • Identifying specific leaders in a given market and understanding their patent strategy and patenting activity
  • Identifying specific companies and products
  • Assessing threats and/or risks based on how well a company’s patents read on your products

Having a detailed understanding of the competitive landscape and the patents that may potentially be used against you enables you to plan proactively, protect your markets, and be well prepared for any future negotiations.

See How Our Clients Have Benefited

Here are a few examples of how Chipworks helps IP professionals and litigation experts... and the results you can expect.

“The analysis provided by Chipworks exceeded our expectations. The company’s ability to strengthen our initial claim gave us the confidence to pursue a licensing program with an industry giant.”

Senior Manager, IP Department

“Chipworks was critical to our strategy, putting us in a strong position that led to successful licensing negotiations. At the end of the day, it’s about finding hits with our patents. That’s why I choose to work with Chipworks.”

Intellectual Property Counsel

“By supplementing standards based documentation with technical evidence of use, Chipworks helped us strengthen our negotiating position. In light of their responsiveness and ability to run parallel programs, they continue to support us in related licensing campaigns.”

Senior Licensing Executive

“Without Chipworks our case would have been much weaker. Chipworks provided credible third party analysis, which is what you need going into a litigation. Both my client and I were very pleased with the work.”

Senior Partner, Patent Litigation

“We don’t give Chipworks the easy stuff. We give them the work that we don’t have the capability to do internally. They helped us validate the potential of monetizing a group of systems patents that initially fell outside of our IP strategy. Now we see that we can derive licensing revenue outside of the semiconductor industry.”

Director IP Group

“Chipworks’ intimate familiarity with the semiconductor and microelectronics market helped define our options and move quickly from a negative cash flow to a multi-million dollar profit.”
