IP and Commercial Due Diligence

Intellectual property (IP) and brands are key drivers of business value, and in many cases are the primary reasons for an acquisition. Whether buying a business including its IP, or acquiring it on a standalone basis, commercial due diligence should be undertaken prior to purchase.

It is imperative to ensure that the IP is protected allowing the purchaser to commercially exploit the IP in an unencumbered manner in line with its strategic objectives. Due diligence goes beyond trademark and patent searches. It requires an understanding of the related assets which are required to fully exploit the IP and to drive future profitability.

Intangible Business’ team of experienced qualified accountants, marketers and valuers provide a realistic commercial assessment of the IP to be acquired which can aid negotiations and provide a basis for subsequent monitoring post acquisition.
