ClearViewIP has a wide range of experience in unlocking value through IP licensing. Be it early-stage technology where partnering with a large corporate entity can pay dividends, or extracting returns from underutilized patent assets, ClearViewIP has the experience and expertise to help you understand where your IP fits in the broader competitive market, plan a strategy around maximizing the value of your IP and assist you in negotiating the most favorable licensing scenario for your business.
To maximise the value of your IP and unlock revenue through licensing, you need to have an understanding of what your IP is worth and have a strategy around how to commercialize it. Utilizing a third-party IP resource like ClearViewIP gives you an unbiased perspective and will enable you to explore (at arms length), multiple outcomes based on various risk and return options. With IP licensing models illustrating multiple licensing scenarios, you’re able to see multiple potential outcomes and make well informed licensing decisions. Our staff is very experienced with negotiating licensing agreements and is well positioned to assist you in this process.
ClearViewIP works with you to understand your commercial licensing goals and timescales, your appetite for risk and your decision-making process. We then assess your IP assets in detail. In the case of patents, we’ll suggest licensing hypotheses, identify products using your patents and collate “Evidence-of-Use” materials to demonstrate infringement. We then assess the market value of the “in use” patents and recommend alternative licensing approaches in line with your goals, timescales, and risk appetite.
In the case of specific technologies, we will identify market sectors and companies that are likely to need the technology and develop collateral to explain the market relevance and value proposition. Then we create an engagement model that will bring value to the future licensee. We can also advise on appropriate royalty rates and commercial business models to unlock the further value. This advice is supplemented by our financial licensing models which are built to your specific requirements. The models are dynamic and can be altered in real time to reflect the developments in terms of the agreement during negotiations.
To maximize the value of your IP and unlock revenue through licensing, you need to have an understanding of what your IP is worth and have a clear strategy around commercialising it. One common feature across most highly successful licensing programs is thorough and extensive preparation.
Patent licensing is becoming increasingly challenging and it requires thorough preparation on the licensor’s part to convince a potential licensee that a license is both required and inevitable and to persuade them into serious negotiations.
ClearViewIP can help with a systematic approach that ensures a comprehensive understanding of the costs and risks associated with your licensing program to maximize the value of your patents with an approach that is in line with your business goals, timescales and risk appetite.
A successful licensing program requires different skills at different stages of the work and our team is well positioned to assist you in this process.
