Intellectual property is a key value for your company.
In the modern economy, business success is increasingly based on the ability to generate valuable intangible assets such as patents, trademarks, designs, or confidential information. Knowing the market value of these assets is not only important but essential when dealing with extraordinary transactions, sales, transfers, determination of merger deficits or requests for financing.
Industrial property assets must be an integral part of a company strategy and having precise financial and economic information allows the growth and economic, commercial and financial competitiveness of a company.
There are various methods for assessing intellectual property assets, the choice of which depends on the purpose of the appraisal.
