Best Intellectual Property Management Software

Intellectual property management software assists in the tracking of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and other intellectual property. Law firms and corporations utilize these tools to manage databases of trademarks, automate forms and correspondence for new and ongoing intellectual property ownership, and track possible violations of legal rights for subsequent prosecution. For law firms who manage designers, artists, inventors, and companies with patented products or services, intellectual property management software helps centralize up-to-date client information, license agreements, and opposition filings in a single repository. This software often integrates with case management tools to streamline the lifecycle of intellectual property procurement and litigation. Some products in this category function solely as patent search engines or filing assistants.

  • Provide tools for managing trademarks, patents, and copyrights and related legal rights
  • Assist in the intellectual property lifecycle, including filing for or renewing contracts, disclosure agreements, and processing payments from clients
  • Offer one or more features related to legal disputes or enforcement actions involving clients’ intellectual property
