IP in Commercial Transactions

Home/IP in Commercial Transactions

Intellectual Property (IP) Rights have assumed a position of zenith in the corporate world, where the value of innovation is not only recognized, but also measured in monetary terms in commercial transactions. IP is an intangible asset for the corporations, which multiplies their valuation primarily due to the intellectual and creative aspects involved in the creation of IP. Shareholders, investors and potential buyers always appreciate the companies with greater IP share in their overall asset distribution. This is true for many technology companies, and companies in the traditional industries, like fashion, beverages, and cosmetics.

For commercial transactions, Intellectual Property identification, evaluation, and proper allocation are vital to get the maximum out of the deal. Thus, for mergers and acquisitions (M&A), public offerings, private equity investments, financing, strategic alliances, joint ventures and other commercial transactions, a comprehensive due diligence with respect to intellectual property rights concerning the products, services and brands of your company must be a sine qua non requirement. Such due diligence will encompass underlying patents, copyrights, trademarks, design rights and confidentiality rights. An incorrectly valued IP can overlook potential disputes that may erupt in future and which may have long term repercussions – both legally as well as commercially.
