Intellectual property is intrinsically connected to business value. Yet software, patents and other intellectual property can be tricky to measure, protect and fully leverage. The challenges multiply when you enter into IP deals — joint ventures, licensing, distribution and other strategic alliances — which carry hidden risks such as counterparty failure, revenue leakage and litigation.
Here’s the dilemma: While your business model and competitive landscape may require you to engage in strategic IP deals, you face a constant risk — that the benefits of such deals may never materialize. That’s why intellectual property contracts require enormous attention to detail, at every stage — from strategy and valuation, to negotiation and execution, to compliance and monitoring.
