    "Intellectual Property:  Risk Landscape"

    Intellectual property (IP) is one of the most important intangible asset classes driving the modern global economy. Intellectual property includes patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and know how, all of which factor ever more prominently in the above companies’ success and other organizations’ ability to succeed. The global expansion of IP has also increased the rise in the number of lawsuits filed claiming infringement of intellectual property rights. Despite the significant risk these lawsuits present, many companies have struggled to properly manage this risk, potentially resulting in loss of revenue, business disruption or even bankruptcy, and damage to brand and reputation.The potential costs, disruption of revenue streams and damage to brand make intellectual property one of the greatest areas of risk a company faces in the current environment. With this broad scope of risk, companies are recommended to institute best practice processes and governance to help ensure that they are sufficiently protected.
