APPRAISAL / DUE DILIGENCE / DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES
Professional appraisals of various intangible assets of businesses, in particular appraisals of trade marks, industrial designs, patents, copyrights and other intellectual property rights. Over the years we have prepared a dozen or so of them.
The appraisals are carried out by professional and experienced teams of a patent agent, lawyer and financial analyst. We offer appraisals of rights and, e.g. estimate licence fees.
The appraisal drawn up by the team of experts is an official document and may be submitted to any institution authorised to analyse it, e.g. to tax offices, banks, or may be used for the purpose of transformation, settlements etc. In practice, income-based methods are used for appraisal of rights.
The nature of intangible assets is such that often they are not only a separate economic entity but they also form a portfolio of rights and frequently have a significant impact on the value of the appraised trade mark or patent. Therefore, appraisals are often carried out with regard to specific group of rights.
We also offer comprehensive analyses of the proper use of trade marks, protection strategy and procedures related to intellectual property rights, correctness of internal regulations in this respect etc. These analyses are drawn up for in-house purposes, as preparatory work for transformation or other processes and the conclusions included therein are based not only on our expertise, but also on the currently analysed case law.
