Intellectual Property assets have increasingly greater importance within a company. For this reason, it is fundamental to carry out IP Due Diligence, not only in buying and selling processes of third party companies but also in a company's own portfolio, in order to understand our potential and the possible risks. This involves auditing in order to assess the quantity and quality of a company’s own Intellectual Property assets or those licensed to a third party.
IP Due Diligence is a procedure through which the legal status of protection and use of the company's Intellectual Property intangibles is analyzed, identifying the risks, opportunities and contingencies of the same.
While due diligence can be carried out as a part of numerous company operations, at Clarke, Modet & Cº it is habitually performed in cases of investment in companies, portfolio acquisition, in-company activity restructuring or the protection of results obtained in the framework of collective research.
