Due Diligence

Whether an entity is seeking to acquire or invest in a company in a technology-driven industry, intellectual property due diligence is a critical step in the evaluation process. Global Prior Art understands that our clients need a comprehensive analysis of the target company's IP assets and liabilities, usually under tight time constraints. To this end, we work closely with our clients to determine the appropriate search parameters based on identification of the critical patents, technologies and claims to be evaluated. Upon approval of a search strategy, we provide our clients with the annotation findings from our Freedom-to-Operate and validity searches on a rolling basis to expedite their review.

As a trusted and experienced partner in due diligence cases, we help our clients:

  • Evaluate the target company's IP portfolio
  • Identify relevant third party IP
  • Manage their internal timelines by providing our findings in an expedited and highly processed manner
