Intellectual property is one of a company’s most valuable assets. At Fishman Stewart, we believe that intellectual property should be managed in the same way companies manage their capital.
TURNING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INTO INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL®
As strategic advisors to CEOs and senior executives throughout the world, we help maximize the value of “intellectual capital”. Patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets are key elements of a company’s business strategy. Managed effectively, they can protect new product lines, increase market share and head off competition.
The result is maximized opportunities, reduced risk and lower costs leading to a stronger bottom line.
STRATEGIC IP TEAM
For business mergers and acquisitions, we provide a thorough IP due diligence analysis to reveal potential issues in patent, trademark and copyright property rights. The value and market share of a business transaction is often based upon the significant value of these underlying IP assets.
