We are pleased to announce that MaxVal has partnered with Unified Patents to provide a Lite version of MaxVal’s SymphonyTM intellectual property management platform to Unified members at no additional cost.

Symphony is a data-driven IP management solution that integrates all aspects of IP management into a single platform that handles invention management, docketing, portfolio management, annuity payments, and more. Unified Patents tracks the activity of non-practicing entities (NPEs), commonly known as patent trolls, and challenges patents it believes to be invalid in order to reduce the risk of patent litigation for its members.

“Unified Patents shares MaxVal’s commitment to improving the IP landscape for innovative companies, which is why we are proud to offer Symphony Lite to Unified members,” said D. Bommi Bommannan, Founder and CEO of MaxVal Group. “The combination of Symphony’s data-driven patent lifecycle management and Unified’s proactive approach to NPE litigation will help operating companies protect their valuable IP more effectively and efficiently.”

The offer is available to all Unified members, starting immediately. The members will have access to Symphony Lite for as long as they remain Unified members. To learn more and inquire about Symphony and/or a Unified membership, please visit http://symphonyipm.com/unified-patents
