IP Rights in Transactions
IP analysis, identification, evaluation, and proper allocation are central to the success of transactions. IP should not be overlooked or incorrectly valued during the due diligence process. It can expose you to future disputes over ownership or provenance. It can also determine a target company’s ability to continue successful operations.
We can help you determine the best approach to managing the registration, maintenance, and defense of your IP rights. Together we can explore acquiring the IP rights and licenses you’ll need to launch and protect new product lines globally.
