IP Commercialisation

We believe that integrating your IP and commercialisation strategies will get your business investment- and growth-ready.

We have worked alongside our clients through the process of getting their businesses investment-ready. Our commercialisation approach ensures you hold your assets in entities that are risk- and tax-effective. Whether you are seeking to apply for or commercialise your intellectual property assets, locally or internationally, we will guide your business through every step of the process.

Intellectual property licensing is the most cost-effective way of obtaining the most value from your IP.

Intellectual property licensing allows you to retain control over these assets while providing an ongoing income stream. Conversely, licensing also gives rise to particular risks that need to be managed.

Whether you have existing intellectual property or an idea or innovation on which you would like to capitalise, we can advise you on the best commercialisation alternative for your business. We also negotiate and draft licence agreements to ensure that you are in the most commercially advantageous position.

“The great benefit of mdp’s advice is that while of a commercial nature, it is also based on a sound IP commercialisation strategy. We will not hesitate to recommend mdp to any business because of their practical approach that has helped us to grow our business successfully.”

Reed Leighton, CEO of Leigton O'Brien
