Technical due diligence isn't simply about counting the number of IP rights, and confirming the chain of ownership. We ask the right questions so that the quality of the IP rights held by a business can be assessed.
Patents can be particular tricky to assess, but we've got the technical knowledge to understand the very heart of a patent right, and the expressivity to clearly convey this to stakeholders. We'll flag areas where the purported role or coverage of patents are likely to fall short, or exceed expectations - and so where value is being lost unnecessarily or could be better leveraged.
We'll also take a look at the ways a business treats its IP, and suggest non-intrusive ways that its capture and use can be used to boost value.
