Opinions and due diligence are a critical aspect of evaluating mergers and acquisitions, particularly analyzing and evaluating terms of intellectual property portfolio assets and securities. As a means of discovering the status of a company, we tailor our in-depth examinations to suit the needs of a particular client, including providing an understanding of current and future products and services, evaluating a collection of IP inventory, trade secrets, branding, confidential information and any agreements affecting IP.
