IP Valuation Process
The process of IP valuation is often referred to as art and science. Our process combines a thorough understanding of valuation methods and techniques with well-researched facts and analysis to address the science of the valuation. In addition, our understanding of the unique characteristics of each type of intangible asset and the unique ways in which these assets yield economic and financial benefits enables us to excel in the art of communicating and explaining the complexities of IP analysis in a way that benefits everyone who encounters our valuation reports.
IP Valuation requires an additional analytical component compared to business valuation. As in the valuation of business entities, in IP valuation a solid understanding of the valuation context (Tax, Transaction, Litigation, etc.) and an analysis of the business and industry are required. In IP valuation, the specific asset to be valued needs further research and analysis, and those benefits specific to the subject assets need to apportioned, or analyzed separately from the profits achieved by the entire business. Nevium’s experience and ability to apply innovative analytical solutions to complex problems enables our team to accurately identify and apportion the benefits derived from IP.

Nevium has conducted formal and informal IP valuation analyses related to food, fashion, apparel, entertainment, sporting goods, publishing and social media, among others.

We valued the brand-related assets owned by a 100-year old restaurant and food services company on behalf of a prospective investor and valued Internet and technology assets and patents to be used as collateral to secure a private equity investment. In addition, our principals have top professional qualifications and have provided presentations and continuing legal education seminars on the topic of IP valuation.
