When looking to monetize your patent, consider the following questions:
- Do you want to sell your patent or to develop a product based on your patent?
- Do you want to license your rights to your invention to another entity?
- How do you see the patent being used?
- Who may be interested in this patent?
- Why would another entity purchase or license your patent?
- Should your patent family be further developed to increase its value?
- Are there any potential infringers of the patent?
- Are there any encumbrances on the patent family?

State-of-the-art patent and technology searches are essential when evaluating the value of a patent or portfolio. Patent searches help establish a comprehensive understanding of existing prior art in a particular area. This is helpful to determine competition, possible infringement concerns, the most effective markets, and potential areas of improvement. To be time- and cost-effective, a precise, detailed plan and a particular set of tools and techniques are required for such searches. For this reason, we have developed a unique process that guarantees the best results. In particular, we take advantage of our extensive expertise in various technological and scientific fields in performing our searches. The methodology requires a pair of experts working as a team, one expert in patent searching, and one in the subject matter. Moreover, we have devised a streamlined process by which the experts will go about producing and reviewing the search results without substantially increasing the cost. As such, we are able to achieve far greater reliability and consistency in our search results than using the traditional methods used by others.
Patent Portfolio Analysis
Often individuals or companies with extensive patent portfolios do not have a clear understanding of their assets. Therefore, a necessary step in discovering marketable assets is a professional, in-depth assessment of the portfolio. The general goal of evaluating a patent portfolio is to identify the most marketable assets. No matter the size of the portfolio, we have developed an efficient, cost-effective process that takes advantage of our team of hundreds of highly specialized subject-matter experts. Our productivity and reliability has proven to be best in class, making our services highly competitive both in cost and in effectiveness for patent monetization.
After the analysis of the portfolio, if a potential infringement is suspected, our highly trained team can assist in developing Evidence-of-Use or Indication-of-Use charts against target products or standards. Then, based on the business goals of the client, we can proceed towards providing ROI through our additional support services for licensing or sale.
At GHB Intellect, we take intellectual property valuation very seriously. No one is interested in wasting time and money on unmarketable patents. Therefore, we are always honest and upfront with our clients about the value of their patents. Our primary focus when estimating the value of a patent is to establish a defensible and fair value for the patent(s). Our valuation services have been derived through direct case experience working with a wide range of clients. Our patent valuation services include evaluating the patented technology, identifying markets and competitors, and assessing venture risks. We then advise each client on how to best leverage the value of their IP portfolios.
