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 5 is provided below.
Technical Evaluation Tier 5
Summary: Tier 5 is a highly customizable Technical Evaluation to meet the client’s specific needs. For example:
- If the client/patent owner is interested in understanding whether potential infringement of the patented invention exists, an Evidence-of-Use (“EoU”) chart against specific products and/or services may be included in the report.
- If the client/patent owner is interested in understanding how competitors are approaching the target technology/market or potential “white spaces” that the technology/market can grow into, a landscape analysis may be performed and considered for the descriptive write-ups in the report.
Use Cases: This tier is recommended for clients/patent owners seeking an in-depth report and highly customizable services to fit their specific needs.
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, (f) potential risks and workarounds of the subject patent(s), and (g) any additional custom analyses as requested. 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.
