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

IP Advisory & Valuation

Intellectual property (IP) is an exercise in strategy much like a chess game, which is often defined as a mix of sport, art and science.


Fallingst Technologies LLC is a boutique advisory and valuation services firm specializing in AI, authentication, digital identity verification and encryption technologies. Our services are designed to help intellectual property
owners gain an independent IP assessment, valuation, marketability strength and approach by leveraging selected
registered Patents and/or published Applications. 


Our IP advisory and valuation services help clients gain and keep the upper hand on the competition, increase attention from the capital markets, support share prices, and secure funding from investors.

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.

IP Valuation Financing Models

Intellectual Property (IP) + Technology Readiness (TR) = Measurable Economic Benefit ($$). 


Our independent third-party IP valuation services help clients take advantage of non-dilutive lender and investor financing opportunities.

Liquidation Value: The company’s IP Assets serve as a collateral securing the loan; should the company default on its loan payments, the lean or debt holders (i.e. venture debt) can take over the assets and liquidate them.  

Monetization Value: Whether a debt holder or corporate lender, interested parties want to know what is the “present value” of the IP Assets. IP owners need to know the ‘value’ to pursue monetization options (i.e. licensing). For debt lenders, monetization is important for securitization or even liquidation sales.

Growth (Pivot) Value: VC or other financial investors are more concerned with the IP Assets’ potential to serve as a platform for innovation and growth for future products and markets as well. How well can the company “pivot” or shift to other business models.

Synergistic Value: The equity investment value-add that a corporate investor brings, as opposed to a financial investor. The ‘money’ invested is the corporation itself (manufacturing, marketing, equipment, infrastructure).


We are committed to creating a sustainable path for those who want to build a pipeline of IP assets and related capital sources to support their innovation and business endeavors.

  • Our expert IP consultant professionals are available to prosecute or supervise prosecution of the entire IP portfolio to optimize value.

  • Our network of expert IP consultant professionals are very skilled in providing coherent IP portfolio guidance of which often can lead to capital sources, as well as identifying potentially patentable technology.
