Patent Portfolio Due Diligence

Patent portfolio

Patent due diligence review is conducted to assess and reduce the risks associated with a business transaction of patents or portfolio of patents among organizations. Before acquiring a patent portfolio, this patent due diligence review is done by the potential purchasers. Due diligence review includes analyzing each and every patent of a portfolio and their patent prosecution history, to understand the validity problems, enforceability problems, claim scope and infringement possibilities.

There are three primary areas of focus for the IP due diligence review:

  • Ownership, status and control of the IP assets,
  • The strength and economic value of the IP assets, Geographical coverage of a portfolio and
  • The potential liability for infringement.

Your due diligence plan should consider each of these areas in relation to your prioritized list of target IP assets. DexPatent provides custom patent due diligence report on an organization's IP portfolio.
