  • CleverIP : For managing our files and our clients’ portfolios, we use CleverIP, a high-performance information technology tool. Our files are entirely digital, which allows us to offer our clients the ability to consult documents instantaneously and securely. This software is now also used by some of our largest clients.
  • Crystal® : An innovative tool for managing of Freedom-To-Operate (FTO) analysis: to meet our clients’ needs, we have developed a highly effective method of evaluating risks/strengths in relation to intellectual property (IP). This makes it possible to present, in the form of a matrix, the key patents of a technology and their nuisance value vis-à-vis a particular product. This method is particularly suitable for audits performed for the purposes of estimating the value of a technology (“Due Diligence”).
  • BE IP® : Intellectual property is a prime competitive asset. This is why training and raising of awareness about it are so important. Whatever profile our clients have, our firm offers training program on these issues by using light-hearted activities that has been developed entirely by LLR. These training sessions are also offered to universities and engineering schools.
