In the last 30 years, intellectual property has become an increasingly important asset for companies. However, it is often not recognized on the balance sheet making the identification, substantiation, as well as quantification even more difficult. This may include trademarks, patents, trade secrets, know-how and many other forms of intangibles.
As intellectual property assets and their impact on the business are neither easy to identify, nor frequently traded, quantifying their value can be a difficult and time-consuming task. At the same time, tax authorities, disputes and claims as well as the exploitation of the competitive advantage of own IP require an assessment of IP value for taxation, legal and strategic purposes.
We help our clients by quantifying the economic value of various kinds of intellectual property and intangible assets, employing state-of-the art economic models.
The IP valuation team helps our clients to defend their case against tax authorities and other public bodies as well as against private opponents in case of IP disputes.
Our IP valuation service also enables our clients to make better strategic decisions; for example which markets to invest in, how to build economically-optimized patent portfolios, as well as how to monetize own IP in licensing, sales and leaseback as well as insolvency situations.
Our IP Valuation team helps clients worldwide within all cases of IP Valuation.
