Strategic Use of Your IP

The monopoly rights conferred by IP ownership can be used to:

  • Attract funding;
  • Maintain investor confidence;
  • Deter potential infringers;
  • Enforce IP rights;
  • Generate revenue streams through licencing IP rights; and/or
  • Generate revenue through sale of IP rights.

In our clients words: 

“I think your firm has the highest quality of any international firm with which we deal. If it weren’t an apples-to-oranges comparison, I’d be tempted to say you are at the top of all firms – US or int’l – in terms of quality work.”



“I have been a client of DCC for almost 20 years, initially working as a consultant for a university commercialisation company, but for the past 14 years in an export-oriented search software services company. I have found the partners and staff at DCC to be professional and knowledgeable, … and have been impressed by their technical knowledge in addition to their core patent skills and expertise. I have no hesitation in highly recommending DCC to any firm or organisation.”
