GHB Intellect specializes in numerous intellectual property (“IP”) services, including Technical Evaluations. A Technical Evaluation assesses the potential strength and value of patent(s) across three metrics: (a) patent strength, (b) encompassed technology, and (c) market indicia. At higher tiers, individual patent summaries or a Technical Evaluation Report is included.
Technical Evaluations are ideal to informatively guide those in evaluating, developing, or monetizing IP assets. Such evaluations are also used to support or inform IP Valuations, as they serve as an unbiased assessment of the technical merits of an idea, invention, or product. In the absence of a Technical Evaluation, we would need to rely on the patent owner’s or inventors’ own technical assessments, which may be perceived by external parties as biased.
A correspondingly tiered Technical Evaluation is included in each Financial Valuation offered. Alternatively, a Technical Evaluation may be performed independent of the Financial Valuation.
A summary of our Technical Evaluation tier 1 is provided below.
Technical Evaluation Tier 1
Summary: Tier 1 a high-level, high-throughput evaluation of the patent(s) within a portfolio. This tier is designed to provide guidance on the potential strength and value of the relevant patent(s) across three basic metrics: (a) patent strength, (b) encompassed technology, and (c) market indicia. The evaluations are performed by our leading IP strategists and technical subject matter expert(s) within the portfolio’s technical field, ensuring accuracy and reliability.
Use Cases: This tier is a great starting point for those with large patent portfolios who are unsure of what their key IP assets are and what next steps to take in evaluating, developing, or monetizing such assets. Tier 1 is also well-suited for small or single-patent portfolios by inventors who are unsure whether the merits of their patent(s) warrant a more in-depth evaluation or valuation.
Deliverables: An evaluation metrics scoresheet with ratings for each patent across 15+ assessment parameters.
