IP strategy Transactional

We are Stibbe IP Strategy specialists

A key aspect of our approach is to help clients understand technical complexities of strategic importance, and reduce each concern to its core business issue.

IP Strategy - Transactional

As setting-up any IP strategy is very closely related to a client’s overall business strategy, we work closely with them to understand the innovations at stake, their position in the market and that of their competitors before making any legal assessment.

In this manner, we manage international IP portfolios for our clients identifying, valorizing and protecting their IP. Our strategic advice is always focused on maximising the IP value.

Our experience includes identifying IP assets by helping clients to understand the nature and scope of the relevant IP rights and protection available. We also help to maximise tax incentives available for IP generated profits. Furthermore, we assist international clients in centralising their IP ownership and restructuring IP rights.

We have proven expertise in supporting M&A, capital markets and finance transactions with regard to intellectual property aspects. We provide advice on all kinds of IP matters associated with such transactions. These include due diligence research of IP portfolios and licence arrangements, raising IP issues and providing pragmatic, business-minded solutions for all flagged issues.
