Valuation in Bankruptcy
A considerable and increasing number of corporate restructurings involve significant intellectual property (IP) assets, including patents and technology, copyrights, trademarked brands, and customer agreements, to name a few. For many companies, IP is among its most valuable assets, establishing its market identity and setting it apart from the competition. Disputes related to IP, IP rights and their value are becoming increasingly commonplace and can play a significant role in the bankruptcy and restructuring process. Dealing with such issues requires an in-depth understanding of the intellectual property landscape.
