Intellectual assets are property and can be bought and sold just like a building or a car. Intellectual property assets can be bought or sold individually or as part of the purchase or sale of a business.
Acquiring Intellectual Property Assets
Special care is needed when buying an intellectual property asset. Businesses often find it difficult to identify the necessary assets, define the scope and validity of those assets, verify the ownership of the assets, and negotiate the terms for purchase of those assets. Attorneys at the Firm have been involved in this process from a leadership position to an advisory position and can help you as you seek to acquire someone else’s intellectual property assets.
Selling Intellectual Property Assets
Selling an intellectual property asset also requires special care, particularly when that asset is registered in multiple countries. Businesses often find it difficult to identify a buyer, define the scope of the assets being sold, and negotiate the terms of the sale. Again, attorneys at the Firm have been involved in this process from a leadership position to an advisory position and can help you as you seek to sell your intellectual property assets.
