Leading international IP firm Rouse has formed a strategic alliance with consultancy Iceberg Transactions to ramp up its non-contentious IP transaction capability.
The two entities will join together on client pitches and to offer advice, with Iceberg working on deals involving IP portfolios, such as patent acquisitions and using IP as collateral for loans.
