We support private firms, particularly in IP-heavy sectors, including the branding industry, healthcare, pharma, automotives and chemicals. Our team has broad experience in terms of disputes and litigation, and can help to determine the value of an IP, for example in cases of patent or trademark infringements, breach of contract or trade secret theft. We conduct damage assessments in such areas as lost profits, reasonable royalties and price erosion, and provide expert opinion in court when needed.
In terms of strategy and monetisation, we help in IP valuations for M&A purposes, internal decision making, attracting finance and determining market potential or for the divestment of non-core IP. We also determine licence rates and licence structures for internal or external out-licencing of IP.
Economics of IP valuation and transfer pricing is our core expertise, and we develop robust valuation models that are customised to consider the unique features of the IP in question and the needs of the client.
