IP Due Diligence
IP Due Diligence is an important part of licensing, corporate mergers, acquisitions, and private equity deals. We recognize that the scope of an intellectual property due diligence should be tailored based on a variety of factors, including the overall value of the transaction, the importance of the technology, and the anticipated intellectual property-related risks. We coordinate closely with our clients to structure due diligence to meet their needs efficiently. Our experience also includes assisting buyers and investors in determining the appropriate value and risks that are present in a transaction by performing a thorough evaluation of the target intellectual property.
We staff our IP due diligence projects with senior IP attorneys/Agents who are highly experienced in IP due diligence and attorneys/Agents with deep knowledge in the subject matter technology and industry. Our attorneys/Agents understand the complexities and pitfalls that can affect the intellectual property being purchased or sold.

There are several methodologies commonly employed to value intellectual property. Our attorneys/Agents are experts in these different methodologies of intellectual property valuation.
We are skilled at employing combinations of the standard valuation models, including:

Each method has unique advantages and disadvantages. Our attorneys/Agents understand which valuation model is the most appropriate for individual pieces of intellectual property, as well as entire intellectual property portfolios.
