Due Diligence

Working on behalf of both buyers and sellers, our team delivers thorough, practical, and precise analyses of intellectual property portfolios for client transactions. Investors, startups, and corporations rely on our extensive experience to identify key issues that will steer them toward the most favorable deal position.

From seed funding to mergers, acquisitions, and public offerings, Pabst Patent Group (PPG) performs critical due diligence for both startups and corporate clients. We invest the time to ensure that their intellectual property portfolios will withstand scrutiny by potential buyers or investors. PPG works with clients to:
  • Perform an internal intellectual property audit
  • Ensure that patents and/or patent applications cover the products of the company and potential development areas
  • Identify intellectual property-related risks and develop an action plan to address them with potential investors
  • Review opinion letters that have been sent to the company
  • Package company intellectual property materials in preparation for investor review
  • Assist the company with responding to requests and resolving issues discovered during due diligence

For investors, we play a crucial role in vetting the intellectual property portfolio of target companies to determine whether they are solid and represent a significant value to the investor. When executing intellectual property due diligence on behalf of investors, we typically:
  • Perform a comprehensive review of the target company's intellectual property portfolio as well as the intellectual property landscape in the technology field of the target company
  • Identify risks or possible gaps (validity, freedom to operate, etc.) in the intellectual property of the target company
  • Develop plans to mitigate or minimize any risks identified
  • Create budget of costs associated with maintaining and further developing the intellectual property portfolio
  • Provide overall opinion on the strength of the intellectual property portfolio
  • Assist with the final “go” or “no-go” investment decision
