The firm’s Due Diligence Investigations Group has extensive experience in providing intellectual property due diligence services to its venture capital investor and corporate clients in connection with acquisition and sales, equity investment and licensing transactions.
Our experience 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. Depending upon the size of the deal and the desires of the buyer/investor, various investigatory evaluations may be performed including, ensuring that the target products are clear to sell in the marketplace, investigating whether the intellectual property is adequately protected and identifying any associated risks, and determining any ownership or licensing issues with the target intellectual property.
Our group is also experienced in counseling clients on how to face the unique challenges when they become targets of an intellectual property due diligence investigation. We have assisted our clients in preparing their intellectual property portfolio for the tough scrutiny that will occur with any prudent buyer/investor. Such services include, ensuring that target products are free of infringement risks, identifying and correcting any concerns with the intellectual property portfolio and assisting with the organization of the portfolio and all related documents to ultimately elevate the value of the target assets.
The Due Diligence Investigations Group is conscious of the unique needs and challenges that will be encountered by each of our clients whether they are the buyer, seller, or investor, and are keenly aware of the budgetary and time constraints that are commonly associated with the performance of intellectual property due diligence investigations.
