Our Mission for Intellectual Property:

  "Making IP an Integral Part of the Success Process."

Who We Are --

NTP-IP Innovations is an Intellectual Property (IP) services firm specializing in IP-Centric legal services aimed at maximizing the potential of novel technologies.

Because of the technical nature of patents, and to a lesser degree, other forms of IP, most of our work is focused on the Engineering side of Product Development.  However, we have provided assistance to our clients' Marketing, Project Management, and Information Systems groups to execute business plan objectives for IP implementations that span multiple functional groups within an organization.

Our job is to help you answer tough questions about the value of your IP. This includes determining whether it's even worth pursuing at all! We support your portfolio building efforts at every step along the way; this starts with a concept, followed by a look at what competitors have done, calculating potential values, and finally preparing properly timed materials for filing with the appropriate agencies.

Even if there is a mountain of prior art to analyze, we'll organize yours so it makes sense.

We started our business in late 2008 with initial project work focusing on product "hits" analysis. This data was supported by claim charts to answer infringement assertions and licensing discussions between clients' IP counsel and competitors.

After several of these "defensive" endeavors, we realized that many companies have not perfected methods to realize the competitive potential of their Intellectual Property. Thus we started helping clients create programs to integrate IP into the product development process. The end result is a significant improvement in focused IP & marketplace control.

Our principal, Tom Peiffer is networked with other related services firms, and also with patent attorneys/agents to get the most effective combination of talent.  This includes integrating closely with our client's project managers. Tom has a solid background in the Intellectual Property (IP) associated with electronic devices & systems, multi-media applications, materials processing, communications, and software applications.

In regard to fees, our structure is reasonable and flexible. Billing rates, and/or flat fees, are determined by the type of work and negotiated in advance of each engagement.
