Hilco Global has issued a timely and relevant report examining the shift in the balance of value between tangible and intangible assets that has taken place among large corporations, and how data driven insights and thorough management of a technology patent portfolio can lead to the realization of significant value for companies seeking access to additional sources of liquidity.

Best Practices for Valuation, Assertion and Monetization of Technology Patent Assets, authored by Gillian McColgan of Hilco IP Merchant Banking, discusses the process for properly assessing and valuing technology patents as well as the painstaking steps that must be undertaken to both establish defensible patents and demonstrate infringement.  

“We hold the firm opinion that these valuations, themselves, must be accompanied by a level of comprehensive technical diligence comparable in scope to that which would be applied in reverse engineering of a potential infringer’s products to validate that their implementations do, in fact, violate the subject patents,” says McColgan.  

The report also outlines best practices in the areas of patent mining, market analysis, standards and infringement analysis, reverse engineering and lab services.
