Intellectual property issues are increasingly complex and growing in their importance. Red Chalk Group assists clients by providing custom IP consulting, analysis, and research for both existing and emerging technologies. Whether augmenting a company’s internal skill-set or providing unique external capabilities, Red Chalk Group is a trusted intellectual property consultant to many Fortune 50 companies.
Technology is evolving at an accelerating rate and many companies find it difficult to objectively assess the strengths of their patent portfolios at any moment in time. Red Chalk Group's ip consulting can assist you to determine its technical strength in today’s market and also determine its value. We often interact with accounting and auditing teams when providing our objective valuation analysis.
Because Red Chalk Group also provides full-service patent brokerage capabilities, we are able to integrate market knowledge of transaction closing prices – providing empirical data to augment traditional economic valuation.
As patent licensing and litigation efforts have become increasingly aggressive, the need for broad, systemic patent acquisition programs is critical. Our patent consulting can assist you in both establishing your program as well as identifying/assessing patents of interest. Our unique combination of technical experts and patent statistics let us quickly and efficiently triage large patent sets and find those “needles in a haystack”. We also have the experience to approach potential sellers and negotiate transactions to maintain anonymity and minimize purchase costs.
Competitors are never standing still. In fact, the rate of patenting, patent related litigation, and technology commercialization & licensing continues to rise ‒ driving the need to fully understand your industry and related competitive dynamics. Red Chalk Group has the unique capabilities to identify and evaluate the intellectual property portfolios within an industry or specific competitor ‒ providing you with the decision-grade information and results required to not only keep pace, but surpass your competitors.
In today’s competitive environment, internal R&D efforts often have difficulty maintaining the pace of innovation needed. Many companies are accelerating their IP acquisition efforts in response as a means of acquiring innovative technology. Red Chalk Group's IP consulting can augment these efforts and acquisition idea generation. We also assist companies to acquire specific portfolios for both offensive and defensive purposes as well as provide intellectual property consulting support in post-merger integration of portfolios.
Companies today are looking with greater frequency at the latent IP licensing potential of their portfolios. Red Chalk Group assists our clients by identifying licensing and commercialization opportunities (and potential liabilities) and provides deep market research and financial analysis to ensure that these efforts are aligned with overall business strategy. By segmenting the portfolio, mapping to addressable products and revenues, and technically assessing the IP, we can help you build the strategy to deliver both long-term and short-term results. We are also able to help you develop the roadmap and implementation plan to realize the licensing potential.
