IP due diligence assesses how IP is safeguarded by businesses and IP rights-related risks and is usually carried out by a potential buyer to gain an overview of the target companies' IP assets. It can also be done by a company in preparation for a transaction, such as a business sale, a major licensing deal, or the potential allure of a relevant investment opportunity, or to rationalise the IP portfolio to reduce its maintenance cost.

IP due diligence experts are specialists in navigating the intricate landscape of intellectual property law. These seasoned legal professionals, with experience at national, European, and international levels, are dedicated to assessing IP assets related to projects funded by EIC grants. Their commitment to excellence and client-focused approach ensures that your IP rights are in expert hands.
