Business Valuation Advisory

What is the value of my emerging technology company?

We specialize in complex valuation assignments that involve technology-driven businesses or situations in which the business is in an early or transitional stage and the value may be difficult to ascertain.  Our experts bring strong educational and professional training to each engagement, in addition to our deep experience in valuations, strategic consulting, and disputed matters.

IP Valuation & Licensing

Who are potential licensees of my technology?

We are experts in the valuation and licensing of intellectual properties and intangible assets.  Our valuation experts have professional valuation-related credentials from the AICPA, the American Society of Appraisers, and the CFA Institute.  Our experience in complex commercial litigation involving intangible assets results in thoughtful and credible analyses that provide realistic assessments of value.  Through these analyses, we have also developed perspective and expertise in the evaluation of commercial success that may be due to the use of a patented technology.

Bankruptcy Analyses

How does the presence of a significant patent portfolio affect the bankruptcy process?

We are often retained on behalf of creditors’ committees, debtors, trustees, or distressed businesses.  Our bankruptcy analyses often include valuations of debtor assets, particularly patent portfolios and other intellectual properties.  We also perform solvency analyses, accounting investigations, restatements of financial reporting, and tracing of potential fraudulent transfers or preferential payments.

Law Firm Consulting

How can my law firm strategically position itself for the future?

Over the last 25 years, our Law Firm Consulting practice has been retained by leading law firms to assist with a wide range of strategic and management issues.  Our services include mergers and acquisitions, global and regional strategies, partner compensation systems, governance structures, partner succession, and more.  We stay abreast of topics that would be of concern to the firm chair or an executive committee, and work with many firms on these important projects.
