Intellectual Property

Intellectual property lacks physical properties and represents either legal rights or competitive advantages. It can take many forms, such as patents, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, or brands, and can be either developed or acquired. We perform valuations of intellectual property for numerous reasons, including pricing and strategic purposes, to secure financing, or for tax or financial reporting.

When conducting a valuation of intellectual property, it is important to have knowledge of numerous valuation methodologies. We draw from a variety of valuation methodologies and analytical approaches, such as relief from royalty, excess earnings, discounted cash flow, Monte Carlo simulations, and option pricing.
