IP evaluation in bankruptcy
Is the utilisation of bankrupt companies’ industrial property rights worthwhile?
The success of utilisation efforts in bankruptcy depends not least on quick, competent statements on the value and the usability of intellectual property rights.
An important question for a technology company that has to file for bankruptcy is, therefore, the same for the management and/or liquidator: Does the company to be managed hold property rights such as patents or trademarks, and can they be utilised in the short term?
We can answer these and further questions quickly and with a high degree of precision, because Serviva GmbH is your reliable partner in taking care of bankrupt companies with industrial property rights!
After a brief examination of the relevant industrial property rights, our experts can make an initial assessment as to whether the corresponding industrial property rights are worth evaluating at all.
In a second step, at least the magnitude of a possible revenue is determined and first potential buyers identified. The bankruptcy itself has a direct influence on the value of the property rights and limits the possibilities for utilisation considerably.
However, it is not uncommon for property rights to have a value that should be considered in the event of bankruptcy, regardless of whether the business is to be continued or disposed of.
