Case Study: IP Monetization Due Diligence

We were contacted by a company (“Client”) specializing in development of vehicle safety solutions. The Client was ultimately interested in monetizing their patent portfolio.

Case Study: Patent Valuation

We were contacted by a small company within the retail e-commerce industry to provide a Tier 1 financial valuation of their patent. The client’s patent portfolio consisted of one U.S. issued patent, covering a novel distribution method within the e-commerce space. 

Case Study: Patent and Literature Search for Network Architecture

An art search is an important tool throughout a patent’s entire lifecycle. Searches can comprise many parameters and provide necessary due diligence in, for example, patent prosecution, litigation, licensing, and mergers and acquisitions.

Case Study: Tier 3 Valuation of 3D Modeling and Digital Fashion Patent Portfolio

Patent valuation can be a complex and challenging process with numerous variables. Importantly, the valuation should take into account the intended purpose and the intended audience.

Case Study: Patent Litigation Support, Evidence-of-Use Charts

Patent litigation is a stressful and extensive process. Successful patent assertion planning requires finding the right partners who can help with various aspects of the process.

Case Study: Chemical Coating Product Development

Product development and intellectual property go hand-in-hand.  Solo inventors seeking to bring their idea to reality must balance development efforts and IP acquisition to protect that development.  This article describes some of the efforts we take to help facilitate an inventor with an idea.

Case Study: Li-Ion Battery Testing

In this case study, we performed studies to determine the charge cut-off voltage (max voltage) and anode/cathode capacity ratio for Li-Ion batteries found in several major smartphone and notebook products.

Case Study: Patent Valuation (Damages) of a Multi-Camera Apparatus

In this case study, we determined the fair market value of a patent directed to a multi-camera apparatus that may be used in a technology transaction or, if needed, in a patent litigation.

Doherty Power Amplifier Circuit Extraction and Simulation

In this patent infringement case study, we performed a detailed circuit extraction in order to determine the microwave integrated circuit (MIC) topology of the PA module. Based on this circuit extraction, we performed a non-linear circuit simulation to accurately show load modulations. In this case study, we purely focus on the circuit extraction.

Case Study: Technical Evaluation and Patent Valuation of a Vehicular Device

In this case study, we explain our process in determining the fair market value of a patent directed to a custom vehicular device designed for fleet operation and activities. Here’s how this valuation benefitted from a two-step approach: 1) a Technical Evaluation, which will be used as input to 2) a Fair Market Valuation.
