IP Audits, Analysis & Opinions
The business landscape is changing and intellectual property has an importance today greater than ever before. We are shifting away from a world where businesses’ assets were tangible, such as real property, materials and machinery. Now, three-quarters of a typical company’s assets are intangible. Whether a company has a need to evaluate competition or their own intellectual property progress or simply gain perspective of their market position, they turn to the intellectual property law team at JacksonWhite.
What is an Intellectual Property Audit?
An intellectual property audit provides an assessment of the intangible assets of a company. The audit helps to quantify the value of the intangible assets to the extent that such value depends on the legal right to those assets. The audit examines and evaluates the strengths and weaknesses in the procedures used to protect each intangible asset and secure appropriate intellectual property rights. Where necessary, the audit provides tools to develop additional processes, make improvements to existing processes, and take correcting measures to help ensure capture of future intellectual property rights.
