Valuing an IP asset improves the accuracy of a product / business worth and provides the basis for future growth and the accurate sale and license. Knowing the value of the IP asset (Patent, Trade Mark) plays a key role in making strategic decisions and facilitates the commercialisation of the IP right e.g. raising funds, joint ventures, mergers acquisitions and licensing.
The valuation of IP rights is one of the main activities related to intellectual property management within an organisation or company. How you go about valuing an IP asset is not a simple process and all depends on the context in which the IP is used.
Provide an honest appraisal of your IP assets and how best to exploit them.
Undertake a comprehensive analysis using real life data, market conditions and knowledge.
Compile a financial report in relation sale or licensing agreement, JVs and alliances.
Advise on royalty and sale rates.
Provide independent valuations for disputes, expert witness reports and tax purposes.
Make suggestions that will improve the value of your IP asset.
Formulate a strategy that will increase the likelihood of the valuation being achieved.
