Intellectual Property Due Diligence


IP due diligence is a tool which allows entrepreneurs to responsibly plan and run their business. It is undertaken when building a company strategy and designing projects, reorganizing the ownership structure of the company, and restructuring, as well as for trade transactions, launching new products, and investments.

IP due diligence is addressed to owners and managers of companies who want to assess the condition of their business, its strategy, and the effectiveness of intellectual property assets management. This service is also often used by prospective buyers of intellectual property rights, investors, business partners, as well as companies who use intellectual property rights for obtaining credit.

The key element of IP due diligence is collecting, verifying, and assessing data related to intellectual and industrial property items owned by the business. We conduct IP due diligence using our own online questionnaire. We conduct all research required by IP due diligence (patent, trademark, and industrial design searches) using professional tools, such as databases, search bases, and analytical bases. The IP due diligence provided by our firm is characterized by a comprehensive and customized approach and its goal and scope is always suited to each business’s individual needs.
