Due Diligence and Audits

IP often is at the core of company's value, and in turn to its transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, licensing negotiations, product launches, and litigation. To clarify potential values, opportunities, and risks involved in such transactions and activities, Hart IP offers IP audit and due diligence services tailored to business objective priorities.

For example, Hart IP provides audit and due diligences services to inventory IP and related assets, determine quality/scope of identified IP assets and rights, classify portfolios by technology areas or business divisions, identify strategic/tactical and other values and risks associated with IP assets,  identify affects of existing IP rights on the company's core products and services, identify IP that may be peripheral to current business objectives (e.g., for monetization, pruning, etc.), and provide a basis for future IP surveys, licensing, sales, and predicting a future value for the business.
