Evaluate Technical and Legal Assessment of a Patent or a Portfolio

Due Diligence Perspective - The Sagacious Way

Before you acquire a patent, it is important to assess it from different perspectives. Sagacious IP’s Patent Due Diligence investigates whether a patent is valid and/or enforceable. It helps to ascertain that the patent claims (information concerning the patent owner, named inventors, technical field or market) are correct and that there are no issues related to patent enforceability that might impact patent claim scope, which in turn may impact patent infringement.

Organizations leverage Patent Due Diligence for:

  • Internal Audit of a company
  • Patent/Company Acquisition
  • Patent Assertion firms before asserting a portfolio
  • Assessment by 3rd parties when providing loan on IP
  • Valuation of a company
  • Valuation of IP assets/Patents
  • Filing Bankruptcy
