With IP being an integral part of any Corporate’s business strategy, an evaluation of a company’s legal position with respect to its Intellectual Property Rights is a must and a pre-requisite before any strategic action such Mergers, Acquisition, Portfolio Purchase/Sale is undertaken. IP Due-Diligence not only involves the valuation of existing Patent Portfolio but more importantly includes focus on the inherent value of the IP keeping in perspective competing and substitute products, competitor’s portfolios, market needs, pricing and positioning aspects, among other parameters.
