IP Due Diligence

Deciphering the Value of Complex Portfolios

Our team’s technical mastery is central to successfully completing complex diligence projects. We are counted on to efficiently assess IP assets and help our clients properly leverage the strengths and weaknesses of portfolios. AMD recently engaged us to analyze a portfolio of more than 1000 patents to select assets to serve as the basis for a new licensing campaign. Johnson & Johnson recently hired the firm to handle the diligence on a $4.35 billion acquisition.

Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz helped two in-house Johnson & Johnson attorneys conduct due diligence for J&J’s $4.325 billion acquisition of Abbott Medical Optics (AMO). Mintz attorneys assessed AMO’s patent portfolio, license and settlement agreements, and patent litigations and made freedom-to-operate assessments.

Our Approach

Every day we help our clients validate the quality of patent and trademark assets held by competitors and potential acquisition targets, and even in their own portfolios. As part of the critical analysis required in the course of a litigation or transaction, we also help ensure proper assignment and ownership. And we delve into the status and possible outcome of pending and potential litigations. Our clients expect us to identify the opportunities and threats presented by a portfolio — and to help them mitigate the weaknesses and leverage the strengths.
