Intellectual property assets (patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets) often represent a significant portion of a business’s value. Businesses often request a valuation of intellectual property assets for the purposes of accounting, taxation, investment, borrowing, licensing, internal transfer, or purchase/sale. A valuation is essential in determining whether an offer, asking price, or royalty rate is realistic. Businesses that do not obtain an intellectual property valuation risk overpaying for someone else’s intellectual property assets or leaving money on the table when selling or seeking an investment in their intellectual property assets.
The Firm has provided many valuations ranging from one domestic patent application to multinational patent and trademark portfolios.
