Intellectual Property Valuations

Establishing the Value of Your Intellectual Property

Intangible assets, or intellectual property (IP), often have more value than tangible assets and can significantly impact your company’s true value. However, determining the value of an asset that you can’t put your hands on, or may struggle to define, can prove quite difficult.

Valuation Scenarios

We perform IP valuations for the following:

  • Litigation
  • Financial reporting
  • Gift and estate reporting
  • Transactions
  • Business restructuring and realignment strategy
  • Transfer pricing

For litigation purposes, we assist clients in evaluating the actual or potential losses in disputes concerning the exploitation and protection of intellectual property rights. We also assist attorneys and companies by providing IP valuation opinions for a range of assets from patents, trademarks, and copyrights to customer lists and licensing and franchise relationships.
