Technology and intellectual property expertise that solves the challenges patent owners face.
The biggest hurdles for patent owners, including companies, universities, and startups, most often involve monetizing and managing their IP portfolios and augmenting their teams with the right experts with the precise knowhow on an as-needed basis for the IP and technology-related project at hand. To optimally leverage their IP portfolios, patent owners must be able to navigate these challenges and remain agile to identify, develop and capitalize on new opportunities.
To help patent owners overcome these hurdles, GHB Intellect offers comprehensive patent and technical analyses, including portfolio mining and technical patent assessments to help generate recurring revenue and potentially reduce portfolio administrative carrying costs. We also perform infringement analysis and reverse engineer competing products to uncover possible trespass on your IP; perform IP valuation and patent brokerage services to leverage the value that lies hidden in your IP portfolio; undertake patent portfolio management and evaluation; and conduct patent searches and technical assessments and evaluations.
Patent owners enjoy many benefits from GHB Intellect’s Patent Owner solutions.
Leverage IP to Generate Revenue, Establish Strategic Partnerships, and Secure Investment Capital
GHB Intellect serves as a leading intermediary providing patent brokering and IP monetization services to participants in the patent trading space. To monetize valuable patents, avoid unnecessary risk, increase the likelihood of agreeable deal terms, and maximize access to technologies protected by patents, patent buyers and sellers and licensees and licensors have come to GHB Intellect’s expert patent monetization services.
IP assets are a crucial component of any company’s intellectual property. As property, they can be traded just like other assets, and their value is often realized by selling, licensing, or otherwise transacting them to third parties. Our growing global network of buyers, sellers, licensees, and licensors, provides you with broad access to this valuable market. GHB Intellect also wields strong influence with these transacting parties, often helping to bring about a deal or optimize the terms of the deal for our customers where others might not.
GHB Intellect IP monetization services include account managers that assign experts in finance, technical sciences, and engineering to ensure an accurate understanding of all aspects of a potential transaction. Our team of IP and technology experts can help with your IP development to maximize the monetization of your portfolio with expertise in patent mining, technical assessment, reverse engineering, patent valuation, and patent acquisition.
It is important to have a strong network of partners when you are looking for buyers or sellers that might be interested in your intellectual property rights. The GHB Intellect Network provides this kind of service, by connecting companies with diverse expertise across many different fields so they can find potential clients, licensees, and other counterparties easily and efficiently.
IP strategies are important to any company that has creations or inventions. No matter whether your company is in the early stages of patent portfolio management, or already has an expansive portfolio, we can help you find and harness value to help you monetize the intellectual property you already own. But not all IP is a good fit for in-house usage or development; therefore, many of our clients need help monetizing their entire portfolio of patents and trademarks when they decide to outsource their intellectual property needs.
A strong understanding of intellectual property monetization and IP economics is the primary differentiator between the highest performing technology firms. Through investment in the correct patent or portfolio at the right time, they allocate R&D budgets that go directly to income-producing assets. Patent value is not consistent for each patent filed and the short-term versus long-term benefits can vary significantly as well.

Maximize Patent and Enterprise Value with Expert IP Management Solutions
Intellectual property management is a term used for describing the oversight of intangible assets like designs, publications, inventions, software, and music. According to the USPTO report on intellectual property and the US economy, 81 out of 313 total industries are considered IP-intensive and account for about 28 million jobs in 2014. In 2010, this number was only 800,000 and is expected to keep growing. This trend tells us that intellectual property development is no longer a small, secluded area of business management and the need to monitor and strategize on IP assets of the business on an ongoing basis is very important.
We support intellectual property management through our decade long IP experience, our deeply specialized subject matter expertise and industry and market knowledge of high technologies and sciences. We provide patent portfolio management, patent mining, patent landscape analysis, technical assessment, technology transfer, product tear down, patent valuation, and patent search assistance.
