What is IP DUE DILIGENCE?

 Prior to the buying, selling, or licensing of intellectual property (IP), your company must undertake an intellectual property due diligence investigation to ensure that it’s getting the perceived value out of the transaction.  Who is the true, legal owner of the IP?  Have the IP ownership rights expired?  In a merger or acquisition, do all such rights actually transfer?  Are the IP rights encumbered by litigation?  A due diligence investigation will answer these questions and more, saving your company from potential disaster down the road.  Unless your company definitively knows the answers to these questions, it may be a case of buyer’s regret – to the tune of thousands or millions of investment dollars.  There’s nothing worse than thinking that you’re purchasing a cache of jewels, then finding out later that they’re worthless.

In the upcoming weeks we will be addressing what IP Due Diligence is and the critical importance that the process plays in the investigation to maximize IP investment value and minimize investment risk and liability.

This series of articles are written by two of our industry expert attorneys, Laurie Hughes and Suzanne Kessler.
