Patent Brokerage – Sales
IPOfferings launches an active campaign for each client we represent. We create a marketing package for each patent or patent portfolio we agree to broker. It includes a technical evaluation, an economic valuation, market research, analysis of the competitive landscape and, possibly, an illustrative evidence-of-use chart, as well as all forward and backward citations. Using our extensive network of contacts and our knowledge of multiple technologies and applications, we identify the most likely prospects for each patent or patent portfolio. We then put each patent’s marketing presentation in front of the appropriate decision makers at prospective buyers or licensees.
We solicit as many offers as possible, and we help facilitate the buyer’s due diligence process by including in our marketing package the information we know buyers will want in order to evaluate the patent. The more interested prospects we can identify, the higher a price we can negotiate. And, of course, you, the patent owner, have final approval on any offers we bring to you for your consideration. We then negotiate an agreement and close the sale.
Patent buyers fall into three general categories:
- Strategic Buyers: These are businesses that are doing business in a specific market or technology and would have an interest in your patent(s), or that plan to expand into that space and your patent(s) will enable them to utilize your patented technology.
- Financial Buyers: Some companies will buy a patent or patent portfolio with the objective of making money from it – either developing or licensing it.
- Aggregators: These are companies that acquire large numbers of patents in specific technologies, applications or industries.
- Defensive Alliances: Companies will sometimes pool their resources and acquire patents for defensive purposes.
It costs nothing, and it puts you under no obligation, to have IPOfferings analyze your patent or other IP portfolio to determine if there are buyers or licensees for it. Patents we are currently offering for sale on a non-confidential basis are listed on the Patents for Sale page. Contact us at 561-302-3979 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
