A holistic view of intellectual property and how to use it strategically

Posted by Hejab Azam on July 19, 2017 at 5:14 PM

I had the pleasure of interviewing Liz Ward, Principle of Virtuoso Legal, a boutique IP firm. If there’s any law firm that understands the holistic view and strategic use of intellectual property, it’s them. Although Virtuoso is a small boutique IP firm, they have outcompeted large magic circle firms by wining second place for ‘IP team of the year’ at The Lawyer Magazine Awards 2017.

The surprisingly simple key to improving innovation success rates? R&D collaboration.
