What we do
The importance of IP Valuation in Modern Business Decision-Making
An IP valuation helps to better understand the business dynamics around IP. It is at the core to any managerial, financial, legal or business decision pertaining to your firm’s technology. Patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and more broadly also software and data rights offer your business the opportunity to generate income. Our IP Valuation allows to uncover this relationship and gauge its importance to the company’s portfolio.
How IP Valuation manifests in your Corporate Strategy
An IP valuation is however also central to a firm’s business strategy. It can allow a company to understand how valuable an IP is and whether to hold onto it tightly or to license it out or in. It is only through an adequate economic analysis that the business options associated with IP become visible.
As intellectual property rights have started to play an ever more important role in corporate strategy formulation, the accurate intellectual property valuation of patents has become of major importance. OxFirst’s unique IP valuation approach is based on a range of different methods. In this way, we render the trading of IP intellectual property significantly more efficient and profitable.
How Do Our Experts Conduct an IP Valuation?
We first undertake an IP Audit in order to understand the value your intellectual property has to your business. We then select an adequate IP valuation approach to value your IP, be it patents, copyright, trademarks, trade secrets or any other form of protection against unfair competition. The IP valuation approach and licensing rates we may use will be tailored to your specific business context.
IP Valuation: A game changer in Legal Disputes
OxFirst’s IP valuation helps you not only determine the licensing rates of your intellectual property, but any infringement damages your business experienced. Litigations, arbitrations and mediations are a central case for an IP valuation. It can also assist with an IP sale or licensing negotiation. Many cases do not center around infringement, but around the economic impact of the infringement. Such questions are core to the work OxFirst does. Our IP valuations have been several times used in legal disputes and have helped the parties in the case come to grips with the economic worth of the IP.
Patent Box Regime– saving taxes with IP
Patent box is a special tax relief regime that encourages companies to commercialize Intellectual Property by allowing them to pay a lower Corporation Tax. If your company is licensing or selling your IP, you can get a tax relief of 10%. Because of that, OxFirst’s IP Valuation team can help your company gauge the value of its IP, jointly with a qualified tax adviser.
