Commercial transactions involving IP
There are many different types of transactions in which companies might desire assistance in valuing their IP. For example, if your IP assets form a significant value contributor to sale of assets or shares in your business, if you are looking to value your portfolio or portions of your portfolio from a licensing or joint venture/partnership perspective or other types of transactions, there are many legal IP due diligence factors which will feed into a valuation exercise. For example, verifying chain of title and ownership, assessing the registration status or freedom to operate to or around certain IP assets may be pivotal data points as management determines a business path around a particular type of transaction impacted by IP positions of the companies or others.
While the valuation process itself is most often carried out by financial professionals trained in this area, we can assist with the identification and preparation of the necessary information and IP legal inputs to valuation processes.
