In many mergers, acquisitions, licensing, financing, and other transactions, a thorough investigation and evaluation of a company’s intellectual property is critical. This diligence process should determine the risks and benefits associated with a particular investment and provide an assessment of the strength and weaknesses of the company’s intellectual property. In some cases, the process provides the company an opportunity to clean up the scope and ownership of intellectual property rights as well as any validity issues associated with the intellectual property.
At Vivacqua Crane, we have conducted successful due diligence investigations for large and small clients. Our deep expertise of our clients’ technologies as well as our years of intellectual property experience allow us to identify important issues at the beginning of a transaction so that we can strengthen our clients position and maximize the value of their intellectual property portfolio.
