digital innovations
@ a patent law firm

A digital mindest. Professional legal expertise. Transparency. Trust. Experimentation. This blend makes us unique.

Philipa is a digital and network based patent law firm, established on servers, cloud computing, databases, algorithms, AI and program code rather than on paper files, representative offices and large back-office resources. We provide a digital infrastructure and processes that support you to build up and manage patent portfolios that have the potential to grow your business. Welcome to your future digital patent department. Today.

YOUR.FUTURE.DIGITAL.PATENT.DEPARTMENT

our clients...

creative forward thinkers, hard workers with deep knowledge. Just like us.

You know that change is accelerating its pace. That is demanding. And full of new opportunities. Digital disruption, new business challenges and increased innovation speed require a new and smart way to protect your innovations and grow your business. We enable you to succeed.

Curious?

YOUR.BUSINESS

"MONOPOLY!
competition is
for losers."

Peter Thiel

How would you grow your business if it would be possible to offer products with unique customer benefits monopolized exclusively to your company. Sounds like business heaven? We call it patent strategy.

Patents provide a legally enforceable monopoly for 20 years. Let us merge your business and R&D strategy with an appropriately aligned patent strategy to protect and grow your future business and unleash the full strategic power of patents.

YOUR.BUDGET

still paying for big law instead of benefitting from smart law?

External legal services can be costly and the billable hours can be unpredictable. What would a predictable and transparent budget managment, significant cost savings and a digital portfolio management of your patent portfolio mean to your budgets?

We know the cost pressure. And the business model of traditional legal services will not promise any budget relief. What if there was a patent service provider that has simply cut away major cost drivers and expensive status symbols? A service provider that invests heavily in digitizing processes and focuses on what adds value for the customer. With business-oriented and budget-friendly patent services combined with state-of-the-art digital process efficiency. Welcome to philipa.

YOUR.INNOVATIONS

The best way to predict
the future is to create it.

You have an agile, inspired, creative, passionate and business oriented R&D department. Why shouldn't your patent attorneys not just be the same?

We support your projects from the early idea until successful market launch and beyond. With industry proven IP processes, digital tools and industry experienced patent attorneys: While your team can focus on creating the future technologies and products of your company, we tailor the optimal protection for your innovations. We work deeply project embedded, interactive and communicative. We are serious. And seriously fun.

YOUR.PATENT.PORTFOLIO

The external patent department you've been looking for

Running an in-house patent department is a challenging task. We know how vital it is to have the right external partners. And we have founded philipa to be the partner that we always wished to exist.

Due to our smart business model, we provide you with reasonable and predictable flat rate services that will not eat up your budget. Gaining flexibility while cutting costs is no longer contradictory.

YOUR.PATENT-MANAGER

For the industry.
From the industry.

You are working as patent manager and patent professional in a company. We have done that, too. For nearly 20 years. Before we founded philipa as an external patent department.

We wanted to establish a patent service provider that is thinking like an in-house patent department rather than an external law firm. That can anticipate the challenges and pressure. And that can provide service and digital solutions that will support you to advance.

YOUR.INVENTORS

Inventors are changing the world. Let us change how inventors interact with patents.

As an engineer, scientist or technician you want to focus on your R&D work. We enable you to do so while assuring that your development and projects are appropriately protected and not interfering with third party rights.

Where the time pressure and work load in R&D departments is continously rising we help you to keep the pace. Agile processes for project embedded patent counseling, 24/7 video conferencing availability and our digital tools are only some examples of how an inventor - patent attorney interaction can look like.

YOUR.MULTINATIONAL

Complete your big business
with an agile partner.

Our team members have been working with multinational companies like BMW, Henkel, thyssenkrupp or SCHAEFFLER. And we know the challenges which big players are facing in times of change.

Therefore, we have developed IP services that are agile, transparent, digitally based and reasonably priced so that multinational companies can explore new ways of managing their IP workload and IP cost management.

As an example: As communication across time zones can be difficult, we offer a 24/7 service for our multinational clients. Whether a development team in Tokio or a business team in Philadelphia needs our support, just call without thinking about time zones. We are there, when you need it. No compromise!

YOUR.COMPANY

Here is your update
to patent management 4.0

We are providing mid-sized companies with a "plug and play" patent department infrastructure and industry experienced patent attorneys available on site or via digital communication platforms. We offer access to a patent toolbox that was previously reserved for the big multinational companies.

With our "external in-house-patent-department" flat fee packages, we make business oriented, strategically focused and agile patent management accessible for the "Mittelstand"(*).

(*) german phrase for medium-sized businesses

YOUR.STARTUP

start UP
with IP

Founding a start-up and puting a vision into reality is seriously challenging. And seriously fullfilling. Hey, we have founded philipa. We know what we are talking about.

The flourishing of your tech company may heavily depend on the protection of your know-how. In many cases this know-how represents the true value of your start-up. Translating your ideas into your own patents may hinder others from copying your products - and can ensure the survival of your company. On the other side, infringing the patents of someone else may even kill your start-up. We have created special Start-Up service packages, that are carefully shaped to help you to grow your business with the right patent strategy.

YOUR.LAWFIRM

Your business never sleeps. And neither do we.

Filing IP abroad can be an expensive endeavor for a client. With our digital processes and IP interfaces patent filing in Europe has never been easier.

We are available for our partner law firms 24/7. You do not have to think about time zones, regardless if you are located in Bejing, Tokyo or San Fancisco. And our algorithms and servers do not sleep anyhow.

YOUR.M&A-PROJECT

Helping you anticipate and avoid costly IP risks.

IP assets and especially patents are of utmost importance for the valuation of companies in mergers and acquisitions (M&A). With our digital tools we are able to support any M+A project with in-depth risk analysis to avoid that you are paying high for low quality patent portfolios.

We have developed a smart digital tool called "The Diligence Dude", that is checking more than 60 different quality criteria of a target portfolio. It enables us to provide you with detailed risk assessments within the usually tight timelines of a M&A project.

YOUR.FUTURE.DIGITAL.PATENT.DEPARTMENT

smart, fast and
completely different.

New challenges require unconventional approaches and innovative tools. Now.

Curiosity, out of the box thinking and agility are crucial to successfully navigate through a rapidly changing environment. With a fresh and optimistic mindset. Digitally powered. Exponentially smarter. We are just as the future of patent services. Smart, fast and completely different. Are you ready?

Sometimes one patent may not be enough to protect your future technology, your new product or business case appropriately. Think of the possible impact to your business case if someone is invalidating your most important patent. Hence, to protect your most precious technologies and products we have developed an industry proven scheme to build up patent clusters around your future technologies and products.

liFTOff

Developing a new product can be expensive. Not seldomly, the R&D needed eats up budgets of several million Euros/Dollars. Also the marketing to introduce a product into the market is a costly exercise, which may demand for budgets even in excess of the R&D spending.

If your product should then infringe someone else's patent, this may lead to an economic disaster if you must remove the product from the market and pay compensations to the patent proprietor.

To manage and avoid such a painful scenario, we offer various Freedom-To-Operate (FTO) analysis service products based on a digital coBOT named liFTOff.

image/svg+xml NOWNESS! Convenience Visualisation inspire me! individuality uX be empatic! the rise of thedigital natives be therefor me!

I want it all
and I want it now!

You order online today and delivery is expected tomorrow. It is the „amazonisation“ of services.

Reliable and short delivery is expected and an increasingly important indication of service quality. How long does it take till an invention is drafted into a patent application?

Is this the "Nowness!" your customers are expecting?

Empathy most wanted!

In the age of accelerating digitalisation people are looking for and valuing true human interactions. No AI (artificial intelligence) is considered to be empathic.

Convenience!

Thinks are geting more and mor complicated. I want to have it easy. Don't make me think!

Show it to me!

A picture can say more than a thousand words. Visualisation of complex matters will be increasingly expected. This is the change from textual media to multi-media.

Inspire me!

Doing the ordinary daily routine business is geting so boring. I want to be inspired to reach out for the stars. I want to be excited about the future. And I want my business partners to inspire me to become the best "ME" possible.

Generation Online!

The generation Y grew up with digital media. There is no true difference between online and offline world. If it is not existing online, than it is not existing in the offline world for generation Y .

User Experience! (uX)

uX describes all aspects of a user's impressions when interacting with a product, service, environment or facility. Have you ever considered how the user's impression of a patent law firm is in the digital age?

Be there for me!

I want you to be there when I need you. No telephone queues. No call centers. No chat bots.

Just for me!

I want to have services and products that exactly meet my personal requirements. Nothing off the shelf. They are made just for me. And I will love them.
