Assessment of industrial property right portfolios

Before acquiring a portfolio of industrial property rights, the latter should be assessed for their legal effectiveness and value.

In this regard, it should be checked whether these industrial property rights comply with formal requirements, e.g.  whether the provisions of the German Law on Employees’ Inventions have been sufficiently taken into account, and whether the correct inventors have been indicated.  However, an analysis of the contents is also necessary in order to determine whether the industrial property rights are tailored to the products to be marketed and, therefore, provide sufficient protection.

In these cases we assist you by means of an expert opinion that clearly identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the industrial property rights to be acquired and, therefore, provides you with a solid foundation for decision-making and a better basis for negotiations before acquiring these rights.
