Intellectual property and intangible assets.
Independent expert opinions directed to patents, copyrights, trademarks, contracts, and other intangible assets. Valuing these assets calls for clear, robust, and rigorous analyses that comport not only with the economics and financial facts of the particular matter, but also with a number of relevant court cases dealing with various aspects of IP valuation. VLF Consulting has assessed IP value for dozens of clients in such areas as: evaluating existing and contemplated license agreements, fair market value analyses of licensing terms, valuation of patent/IP portfolios during bankruptcy proceedings, valuation of intangible assets contributed to joint ventures, and analysis of IP value to acquire venture or bank funding.
Independent, third-party appraisals of business value for a business sale or purchase, partnership dissolution, marital dissolution, or succession planning.
