Due Diligence in IP Acquisitions

Cantor Colburn has a proven strategy for navigating the complexities of the due diligence process in technology transfers. Failing to thoroughly asses IP assets can be extremely costly.  For sellers, there is the danger of not fully realizing the value of an IP portfolio.  For buyers of technology and/or IP portfolios, it is important to ensure that there is freedom to operate, that the patents, copyrights, trademarks, and other IP associated with the acquisition are valuable and enforceable, and that the chain of title to the portfolio is established. Cantor Colburn has participated in countless IP acquisitions and freedom to operate studies. Through careful analysis of IP dockets, researching regulatory issues, court records, prior agreements, lab notebooks, and assessing the competitors’ IP, Cantor Colburn is able to bring its core resources to ensure its business partners get the most benefit from the transaction.
