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.

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.
