Introduction to Metayage
Metayage IP was founded in 2006, with the vision to bridge gaps between ideas and their implementation. Metayage is a French word for the cultivation of land for a landowner by a farmer who receives a proportion of the produce. Metayage IP builds a mutually beneficial relationship with our clients to cultivate and maximize their Intellectual asset value. We have nurtured IP assets across multiple rounds of funding to harvest successful exits. Like farmers in the Metayage system, we have cultivated ideas at the seed stage which have yielded granted patents in multiple countries.
Prosecuted and conducted patent valuation that includes 25 granted US patents, and patents in India, Europe, Japan, and South Korea.
Acted as an in-house patent counsel for their portfolio companies such as Omnivor and Trusted Key (acquired by Workday, Inc).
Conducted patent due diligence on Freedom to Operate and Patentability prior to Venture Capital Investment in deep tech startup.
At Metayage IP, teamwork is a core value. Our strengths are our processes and teamwork. Within the team, we thrive due to collaboration, not competition. Projects are handled by a cross functional team that includes a patent attorney and a technology domain expert. Our patent professionals have worked on the entire patent prosecution cycle right from patent preparation to responding to examination reports or office actions, hearings and examiner interviews, which gives them an edge over others. We empower our team members to take charge of driving successful outcomes, nurturing client relationships, and maximizing customer success.
