New offering furthers strengthen Wolters Kluwer's Intellectual Property solutions and gives customers access to new specialized research tools and content
Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced plans to bolster its market-leading intellectual property content and workflow solutions through a strategic alliance with ktMINE, a growing IP data and information services firm.
The collaboration with ktMINE provides additional capabilities aligned with customer needs. From within Wolters Kluwer's premier research and workflow solution Cheetah™, users can access IP content relevant to negotiating royalty rates, licensing agreements, patent, trademark, mergers and acquisitions deal data and detailed agreement summaries from public sources including the Securities and Exchange Commission, foreign security filings and the web.
"This move is another key step in our efforts to seamlessly integrate our world-class content directly into the workflow stream, and to provide IP professionals with valuable access to royalty rates, license agreement offerings, patent, trademark and mergers and acquisitions deal data that cannot be found anywhere else," said Susan Gruesser, Product Line Director for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.
David R. Jarczyk, President and CEO of ktMINE, explained, "While legal professionals are seeing an influx in Intellectual Property work and pressure to improve efficiency, we are thrilled to offer through Wolters Kluwer our IP research and analytics capabilities to enable professionals to make better decisions and better advise their clients."
