Intellectual Property Rights

IP Strategy

We believe that your inventions, discoveries, and brands are valuable assets. They have to be protected strategically so that you get a legal monopoly over your competitors. We develop an IP strategy to protect your IPRs so that your IP assets are safe and you avoid infringement issues and litigation costs.

a. IP Management & Audit

The team at IntellexEmpire works with its clients to manage their IPs such that they can maximize the benefits of the IPs.We support clients to develop a framework to identify and develop IPs. We can participate in discussions with venture capitalists and funding firms on behalf of companies to get the right agreements and appropriate funds for the companies to work on their IPs.
Intellectual property is a valuable business asset. It has to be audited. We will help you track the quality and usage of your IP assets. We will set up a procedure to review IPs owned, used or acquired. This will help in discovering the criticality of the IP for business and the financial impact of the IP. Audits can also reveal potential ideas that can be patented.

b. IP Portfolio Management

A proper IP strategy will help to manage existing IPs and also develop a process to increase the number of IPs in the portfolio. Our proficient team will provide analysis on the status of current IPs such as trademarks, copyrights, and patents. We can work on negotiations related to IP transfers and licensing.

c. IP Due Diligence & Valuation

The burden of valuation of your IPs, protection of your IPs and avoiding infringement of your patents, trademarks and other IP property is on you. In high-pressure mergers and acquisitions or setting up collaborations and partnerships and investment transactions, objective IP evaluation is important. IP due diligence is therefore extremely important just like in any other business transaction.
Our IPR team can conduct thorough due diligence for your IP assets. We will define and analyze the IP portfolio. We will determine the absolute value of the assets—patents, copyrights and trademarks based on features, scope, and enforceability of the IP.
IP assets are sold and licensed as standalone assets. You can engage our services to

  • Define the value of these assets based on functional and economic characteristics.
  • Craft transactions such that you gain optimum benefits.

Our deep understanding of technical subjects and proficiency in IP law can help in negotiations with investors, drafting contracts such that risks are mitigated and you will get maximum financial benefit in deals.
We can conduct due diligence audits to assess the commercial value of IP for financial reporting, taxation, and litigation.
