We treat Intellectual property valuation as part science, part art.

IP Advisory & Valuation

Intellectual property (IP) refers to legal rights and protection for creations and inventions resulting from human intellectual effort. It includes intangible assets like ideas, designs, inventions, artwork, and more. By obtaining legal rights for IP, individuals or entities gain exclusive ownership, giving them control over the use, distribution, and exploitation of their creations. This ownership prevents unauthorized use and encourages innovation, creativity, and economic growth by incentivizing inventors, artists, and creators to invest in developing valuable intellectual assets.


IP management is akin to a captivating chess game, where strategy blends art, science, and sport.


Our independent IP valuation services help innovative companies gain and keep the upper hand on the competition, increase attention from the capital markets, support share prices, and secure funding opportunities by leveraging non-dilutive financing options that articulate the marketability strength and value of their intellectual property assets.

Intellectual Property Valuation

We offer a full range of valuation services to help you understand the value of your trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, patents / patent applications and other forms of intellectual property and intangible assets. 

Four Types of Intellectual Property to Protect Your Idea


  • Accumulations of SECRET information that offers competitive advantages (recipe, process, technique, customer list, etc.).

  • If a company wants to go the route of trade secrets to maximize ‘value’ – then the key is to keep the subject matter a ‘secret’.

  • Unlike patents – there is no protection for a given number of years.

  • Extremely difficult to establish monetary values particularly in the case of infringement.

  • Secret information that cannot be reverse engineered, such as software that provides a competitive advantage.  


  • Expressions and/or designs that designate the source of goods and/ or services.

  • Big focus here is the creation brand awareness and demand.

  • Protects logo design, character devices, jingles, music, advertising concepts, brands, trade dress, Internet-related Assets, domain names, web site design, 1-800 numbers, linkages, retail systems, etc.

  • May be renewed every 10 years if used.


  • Works of original authorship and related exclusive rights within fixed pricing parameters.

  • Works of original authorship fixed in a tangible medium (music, written and performed, oratory, art, video, etc.).

  • Applies to software to prevent complete and direct copying.


  • Registered US issued Patents and published US Applications.

  • Big focus here is the protection of utility or functional designs.

  • Exclusive rights to make use, and/or sell claimed invention in jurisdiction that issued the patent. 

  • Primarily utility patents elements.

  • Design patents for ornamental design.

  • Expires in 20 years and cannot be renewed.
