Brokering client patents is not as simple as contacting companies and offering the portfolio for sale. It requires a deep understanding of the business, legal and technical aspects to that segment of the industry, in order maximize the value of the portfolio and avoid potential legal threats.
Patents are acquired by companies not only to utilize the invention, but also to eliminate a threat. IPRG, with our deep understanding of the licensing world, has successfully represented dozens of clients to maximize the sale value of their portfolios while preserving commercial relationships.
It can be expensive and all consuming for a company to embark on a licensing and litigation program – in some cases, it is preferable to divest patent assets for a faster, zero risk return. IPRG and our transaction executives have worked with companies and their counsel to broker millions of dollars of patents over the last 15 years.
