Ocean Tomo was retained by a publicly traded enterprise mobility and networking company in the context of an existing licensing negotiation to provide intellectual property analytics and valuation services.
Our client was approached to take a license to a patent portfolio owned by a competitor that focuses on consumer and enterprise mobile hardware and software. The initial phase of the project included a review of both patent portfolios to identify areas of interest to the licensor and licensee.
The goal of our work was to provide the client with a strategic assessment of its current patent position in relation to the potential licensor. We then focused on a quantitative analysis to assist our client in considering various licensing scenarios to prepare for its negotiation. Our client was satisfied that our independent analytics and valuation work product better positioned them for this negotiation process.
