Trademarks and brands are often key assets in mergers, acquisitions and bankruptcy transactions. At Nevium, we understand a trademark valuation can be a significant factor in determining reasonable royalty rates for licensing agreements. Further, a trademark valuation will provide the value of a trademark at different dates which can be a critical component for trademark damages in cases of infringement, disparagement and defamation.
Trademarks are one of the legally protected components of brands. When performing a trademark valuation, a thorough understanding of the brand components and marketing strategy are required. A trademark typically does not create value without the contribution of other related intangible assets and resources such as domain names, trade dress, logos, packaging, manufacturing relationships, advertising and marketing materials.
