What is an IP Valuation

Knowing the economic value of your intellectual property is vital for strategic decision making and there are many business situations where it's required.


  • The valuation of a company for the purposes of a merger, acquisition, joint venture or bankruptcy.

  • Negotiations to sell or license intellectual property rights

  • Support in situations of patent conflict or dispute

  • Fund raising through bank loans or venture capital

  • Assisting internal decision making for patent protection strategies

  • For accounting and taxation purposes


For example… in order sell, license your IP or enter into any commercial arrangements you need to put value on it. You cannot merely pluck a figure out of the air and expect the other party to accept it. You need to prove and quantify (within reason) it’s value, otherwise it’s worth as much as the other party is prepared to pay for it.
