Intellectual Property Consulting Services
Expert patent valuation services should determine the appropriate value of intellectual property assets & is a critical aspect of any IP transaction and our overarching economics.

These valuations occur during a multitude of technology transfer transactions including the sale, licensing, or acquisition of any IP rights.
What is Intellectual Property Management? The ownership of designs, publications, inventions, software, or media content creates the need for proper IP management.

A Custom-Fit Expert IP Consulting Services Approach
We follow meticulous processes in all aspects of our case/project management. The early stages of our diligent management process illustrated below are implemented to achieve successful results. Learn how the project manager chooses the right experts and why our intellectual property consulting services are effective.
- Understand the technical requirements of the case.
- Map those requirements to qualifications to look for in an ideal expert.
- Quickly identify a list of candidate experts in the network who are singularly qualified for the case.
- Ensure they do not have any conflicts of interest within the scope of the case.
- Carefully review expert resumes and interview them with an eye towards determining if the required qualifications truly exist. (Keep in mind that reading between the lines in a resume or an interview is an art on its own. Only an expert in the general field can detect the nuances necessary to determine the candidate’s strength.)
- Rank the candidates in various specialties and decide on the technical suitability of each candidate for the case. (Note, this judgment call is best made by the project manager, who is a technical expert in the general field.)
- Verify the technical suitability of the top candidate is on par with the requirements of the case.
- If required, the search will extend to our global extended network. The project manager leads the extended search to create a more niche list of potentially suitable experts. The evaluation process repeats as above. But references received from our experts are used to further evaluate capabilities, qualifications, and experiences of potential experts.
- At the end of the process, a ranked list of hand-picked experts who are most suitable for the case are presented to the client. This includes justification for rankings and expert recommendations for each different part of the case.
Once our client chooses one or more recommended custom-fit experts, we offer project management services at no extra charge.
