IP Portfolio Audits

NovelIP Divider Blue Bottom.


NovelIP’s methodical and strategic approach to Intellectual Property portfolio audits are an integral part of any due diligence process relating to company mergers or acquisitions.  

We have a long history of partnering with corporate lawyers to conduct comprehensive, multi-faceted investigations of registered intellectual property rights that include:

  • Identifying historic and subsidiary names of potential applicants and owners
  • Conducting searches to identify rights registered in multiple jurisdictions of interest
  • Identify right family members
  • Liaise with government agencies to determine status and expiry dates
  • Conduct searches to establish the strength of the rights and any vulnerabilities due to honest current use, prior use, non use etc
  • Identify jurisdictions which may present hurdles for future expansion of company

These investigations are equally valuable to a vendor or purchaser.  They establish the exact nature of a portfolio and being open and transparent fosters an environment of good faith and prevents contractual problems that may arise later in the transaction.

Send us a message and we’ll be in contact to discuss a strategy that meets your objectives and budget.
