Acquisition Due Diligence

Acquisition Due Diligence is the procedure of gathering data, validating facts, and calculating risks connected with a business transaction. A key challenge in any due diligence is how to gather, verify and evaluate this information within the time and budgetary constraints of the transaction.

Regardless of whether you are the seller or the buyer in a transaction involving IP, due diligence should disclose the value of the intangible assets involved such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. This value can be determined by examining the potency, extent, and enforceability of the IP, the ownership rights of any included IP, and the prospective potential resulting from the IP.
