Using the Wolters Kluwer legal research platform Cheetah, the collaboration will allow users to access IP content relevant to negotiating royalty rates and concluding licensing agreements, as well as mergers and acquisitions deal data and agreement summaries.
The information will be drawn from public sources including the Securities and Exchange Commission, foreign security filings, and the web in general.
According to Wolters Kluwer, the benefits of Cheetah include faster access to more accurate research, improved browsing, searching and collaborating capabilities, and access to company insights and expertise.
Susan Gruesser, product line director at Wolters Kluwer, said: "This move is another key step in our efforts to seamlessly integrate our world-class content directly into the workflow stream, and to provide IP professionals with valuable access to royalty rates, license agreement offerings, patent, trademark and mergers and acquisitions deal data that cannot be found anywhere else."
David Jarczyk, president and CEO of ktMINE, added: "While legal professionals are seeing an influx in IP work and pressure to improve efficiency, we are thrilled to offer, through Wolters Kluwer, our IP research and analytics capabilities to enable professionals to make better decisions and better advise their clients."
