Intellectual Property / Intangible Assets

We understand that intellectual property (IP) assets such as patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights are fundamental to your organizations and clients. And knowing the value of your assets is critical. Today, IP-based transactions have become common, certain tax strategies depend on IP value, and the use of IP assets as loan collateral or to attract equity capital has grown.
