    Global game change
    Taking intellectual property out of Asia has never been more challenging.

    Keeping it confidential

    Right-sizing your portfolio
    As Asian technology upstarts seek to build their patent holdings, many more established players are beginning to downsize. Both strategies require careful calibration.

    • Focus on quality
