In 2011, Nortel’s $4.5 billion sale of 6,000 patents changed everyone’s view of the value of patent portfolio management. Savvy companies now place the same weight on a strong patent portfolio as they do on their other assets.
The portfolio management services we offer our clients include valuing, identifying, acquiring and selling relevant IP that can be used to strengthen market share, diversify, and ensure ROI.
Since not all patents in a portfolio hold the same value, it is not advisable to spend substantial amount of time on research and analysis of every patent.
Our portfolio mining report is to identify and rank the potentially valuable patents based on key, objective factors such as likelihood of use, validity concerns, detectability, market size, etc. We do this with minimal expense to the client while maintaining a high level of confidence.
