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 4 is provided below.
Technical Evaluation Tier 4
Summary: Tier 4 is a more thorough analysis relative to Tier 3, and therefore includes the services described in Tier 3 but is further augmented. Specifically, Tier 4 will include a full Technical Evaluation Report, which allows for one or more of our highly qualified technical subject matter experts within the field of the invention to analyze the claimed invention and potential risks and rewards associated with its applications in relevant industries. Our experts will further deliver an objective opinion on the technical merits of the patent and/or proposed product, including, e.g., identifying the relevant industry, relevant products and/or competitors, market growth opportunities, technical risks which may factor into risk adjustments (e.g., for IP valuation), etc.
Use Cases: This tier is recommended for patent owners seeking an in-depth report which thoroughly evaluates various technological aspects of the patent(s) and provides detailed descriptions that supplement the Technical Evaluation scoring system. This tier is strongly recommended if the patented technology and/or relevant products fill a niche demand/market.
Deliverables: Evaluation metrics and patent summaries from previous tiers, and a thorough report which includes descriptive write-ups of the: (a) subject patent(s), (b) relevant technological area, (c) technological feasibility and applicability, (d) potential methods of implementation, (e) high level development costs, and (f) potential risks and workarounds of the subject patent(s). All relevant materials and data will be provided as part of the final deliverables. We will conclude the project with a meeting to discuss the key findings of the report and answer any questions.
