Basic IP Due Diligence Steps

According to Patent Issues Relating to Acquisitions: Conducting Intellectual Property Due Diligence, while every IP due diligence must be tailored to meet the particular business situation at hand, certain basic steps should at least be considered:
  • Identify Products and Services
  • Identify Corresponding Intellectual Property
  • Prioritize Analysis (if necessary)
  • Analyze State of Relevant Industry
  • Determine Scope of Protection Provided by IP Assets
  • Verify "Exploitability" of IP Assets
  • Conduct Non-Infringement Investigation
  • Review Warranties and Indemnities
  • Review Any Other Considerations
  • Establish a Value
