Due Diligence

Many companies are unaware of the value of their IP, and in turn, how they can leverage these assets.  We believe in providing commercial advice for our clients that will help them to raise funding, improve the marketability of their company, help them to prepare a solid exit strategy, or strengthen their position through acquisition.

We work with our clients, from advising counsel as part of a large M&A transactions, and assessing potential gaps in an IP portfolio that might hinder a future strategy, through to advising on profitable licensing deals. 

Due diligence projects often require a rapid response.  We will work quickly and efficiently to conduct a detailed examination of a portfolio and will advise on the strongest path to take.  Our experience in developing IP portfolios, as well as litigating IP disputes, allows us to quickly determine if there are weaknesses in the portfolio.  We have worked with our clients to identify IP assets that are undervalued, and ready for further development.

Whether our clients are licensing their IP rights to others, or are seeking investment funds, their IP rights will come under intense scrutiny. Our business focused approach to portfolio management creates IP that will withstand that scrutiny, and we will provide the expert advice necessary to present the value of that IP to prospective licensees and investors.
