Non-merchant organisation (Pharma-sector) – IP Audit & IP protection

The Client

The client is a Belgian non-profit organization active in the pharmacotherapeutic sector. Due to the nature of its activity, the organisation is often challenged with questions pertaining to copyright and other intellectual property rights, as well as open data legislation.

The Project

IFORI was approached by the client who wanted to protect its intellectual property, because of IFORI’s thorough knowledge of IP practices. IFORI was tasked with auditing the Intellectual Property of the organization and afterwards to file the client’s trademarks, review its general conditions and to draft and amend several agreements pertaining to IP. Furthermore, IFORI assists and advises the client in its cooperation with other organisations.


Today, Client has a perfectly coherent and protective set of IP Clauses, matching with the articles of its own terms & conditions. Due to IFORI’s intervention, our Client has also managed to convince its partners of the importance of protecting their IP and of creating a coherent legal framework.
