Summary

We live in an age of intangible assets. Brands, technology, and artistic content are core assets of many companies. The ability to protect the competitive advantage created by these assets is dependent on the strength of the supporting intellectual property rights. This has resulted in an increased need for robust intellectual property (IP) valuations. Applications of IP valuation include financial reporting, tax compliance, litigation, financing, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) planning, and strategy development.
