IP Due Diligence

Angel IP. IP Due Dilligence

Opportunities arise. Businesses grow and interact. Very frequently the main asset in a business is its IP, so if it goes on sale (or part sale) or becomes a target in an acquisition it is important to be able to verify those assets. Understanding a target’s IP assets and also its IP risks can sometimes represent the pivotal point in mergers or acquisitions.

When considering an M&A deal you’ll need to know whether the object of the deal has its IP properly protected, whether appropriate licenses to third party rights are in place and whether its products have FTO clearance. Angel IP has extensive experience in verifying true IP value and identifying assets and risks for due diligence purposes.
