Intellectual property rights are the most valuable and strategic business assets of any enterprise. Recognizing this, we advise our clients throughout the entire IP lifecycle: from its creation, to its protection and enforcement, and its commercialization, all to ensure that maximum value is derived.
For new technologies, our firm conducts comprehensive IP valuation to determine the value or financial benefits that can be obtained through the commercialization, whether through licensing or other modes, of the technologies to third parties. Apart from assessing the qualitative value of an intellectual property right, our lawyers are trained to employ cost-based, market-based, and income-based valuation methods in order to arrive at the quantitative value of a technology.
Our lawyers perform a holistic review of all types of IP agreements to determine whether they are compliant with Philippine law, particularly the law on technology transfer arrangements. We have extensive experience in working with the Documentation, Information, Technology Transfer Bureau of the Philippine Intellectual Property Office to ensure the enforceability of our clients’ commercialization agreements.
The team also conducts analyses on whether certain IP rights can be commercialized to prevent infringement allegations once the product or service is put on the market. We likewise advise on existing and potential license agreements, for our clients to both guarantee a reasonable and fair return on their investment in their IP, as well as to secure equitable returns from the licensing of the IP rights of other parties.
Our lawyers are attuned to the business objectives of our clients and tailor our advice and strategies to leverage their IP for sustainable business growth.
