IP Agreements and Transactions
Intellectual property assets and patents are economic tools that serve many functions: to exclude competition, maximize price, gain market share, slow price erosion, generate revenue, structure funding, and position a company for a merger, acquisition, strategic alliance, or joint venture. Bilicki Law assists our clients in identifying the endgame for their company’s IP portfolio, and offering advice and counseling on when a transfer of their IP rights may best serve the company’s overall goals.
Title Clearance For Confidence In Acquiring IP Assets
In financing transactions, we assist clients in clearing and perfecting title to pledged IP assets and in valuing the IP assets in order to obtain the maximum funding desired. IP assets, unlike tangible assets, require patentees to take a more active role with lenders in the valuation process. We have worked with leading economists in the valuation of clients’ IP portfolios, the establishment of royalty rates, and the development of return on investment models for new business ventures built around clients’ developing technology.
Asset Evaluation For Due Diligence
In acquisitions, we perform due diligence to identify and evaluate the IP assets of the target to help clients gain their strongest advantages in negotiations. Likewise, successful strategic alliances, mergers, and joint ventures require a thorough understanding of IP issues that often are drivers of the potential strategic business relationship.
Integration Of IP Assets After Acquisition
Post acquisition, we work with our clients to integrate the target’s IP assets into the client’s overall portfolio and develop a streamlined, cost-effective, bottom-line enhancing, and global IP strategy. We also provide risk management advice regarding disputes over IP assets that arise from corporate transactions.
