For the successful preparation and execution of corporate transactions, such as mergers, acquisitions or transfers of businesses, specialists of all kinds are required. Since, in recent years, the success of companies has increasingly been based on intellectual property (IP) or know-how, the consideration of these company values is an essential success factor for M & A projects.
We support M & A transactions from a first review or assessment of the IP values to the design and structuring of the transaction, including the assignment of rights. Our focus in these projects is on a close and smooth interaction with the other advisors involved, such as attorneys-at-law, auditors and accountants, in order to provide our clients with a result that goes beyond the review of intellectual property rights and IP assets as such.
Our key competences are the identification and analysis of intellectual property rights and property right portfolios, the portfolio management, the risk assessment with regard to threatening or already pending IP litigation proceedings and the preparation of the corresponding expert opinions.
Additionally, a long-term support of transaction-intensive company structures, e.g. investment companies, family offices or hedge funds, which goes beyond individual projects, offers the possibility of increasing efficiency and reducing the costs.
