The Executive Summary report is an infographic that presents a high-level comparative overview of up to five patent portfolios of your choosing. 

The key metrics provide an instant IP lens on a search company, their competitors and/or other companies of interest. These reports are downloadable as a one-page PDF and are easily shareable with colleagues and clients.

The Executive Summary will compare portfolios by:

• Size
• Geography
• Technology cross over
• Age split by Applications andGrants
• Expenditure
• Litigation split by Offensive and Defensive

The first four organisations which appear at the top of the list of selected comparable organisations will be included in the infographic.
