Our 100 years of combined legal and commercial experience is at your disposal, to help you achieve your business goals. Regardless of your sector or developing technology, realise meaningful value from your intangible assets, get support with business growth and, ultimately, your success.
Our core service model is simple and transparent.

For early stage companies and SMEs, it is extremely important to be aware of your intangible assets, how these contribute to your business and its revenues, and how these assets can be used to drive further growth. Our experienced and commercially focussed team helps clients to unlock the value in their intangible assets, develop strategies to maximise their potential and ensure best practice is followed to keep these assets secure.
At Mathys & Squire Consulting, we recognise the importance of startups and SMEs quickly gaining market exposure and traction. This tests market interest and is also vital for fundraising. We focus on the following factors to help our clients grow:
A valuation of your intangible asset portfolio is an important way of gaining an understanding of the company’s direction and also in identifying significant risks facing the business. We provide detailed valuation reports, supported by a comprehensive analysis of your business plan, financial projections, market analysis and IP portfolio, as well as benchmarking suitable industry royalty rates. Our team uses defined and well recognised methodologies for the fair market valuation of IP, incorporating NPV calculations and discounted cash flows.

We enable our clients to understand the assumptions made in the modelling and the methodologies, as well as the risks involved so they are well prepared for their negotiations.
